This is a Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4G ED VR (VR II) lens in pristine condition. The is a Nikon USA lens and is the VR II version. This lens is in near-mint condition. The barrel is clean and scratch-free, having been covered by a neoprene LensCoat cover for its entire life. The cover was removed for the photographs in this ad, and a new LensCoat cover is included with the lens. The glass is clear and free of any scratches, blemishes or rub marks. The aperture and focus work perfectly, and the VR II functions like-new. This lens has not been dropped or subjected to inclement conditions. It has lived much of its life in its [dry] trunk in a smoke-free home.
I'm selling this lens because I have sold my other Nikon lenses and D810. My days of wildlife photography and carrying this big lens around are behind me. My loss is your gain.
