    WTB : Nikon 300mm F/2.8 VR version I

    I am looking to buy a Nikon 300mm F/2.8 VR version I.
    VR II would be nicer, but I just can't afford that much.

    I would like to buy a fairly newer lens with 3 or more years(of 5 years warranty) of warranty still left on it. Oh, it MUST BE A US MODEL.

    Please send me a PM with detailed description in your own words. Some photos would be even better.

    I'm in No CAL, 95825 area, local deal or SF bay area will be great.
    Thanks for looking.

    Steve

    Steve, I use my 300mm f/4 AF a lot, with a high ISO like 800-1600 I have found that VR is not neccessary and the extra f/stop, is not such a big deal, considering the DOF. Had you considered the earlier version? They are pretty inexpensive and you are not going to find that the newer versions are any sharper. It is just a thought. It is a terrific lens, though it weighs a lot (4lbs+) I use it on a d700. Joe
