    Nikon 400/2.8D II, WH-200, FD 300/2.8L, Nikon 500mm f8 Reflex

    My conditions: For items which don’t include shipping (usually the cheap stuff), shipping is usually $20 - $25 (to Canada or the USA) so buy a bunch of stuff to make it worthwhile. I accept most payment methods. All prices are negotiable and I'm happy to do package deals. If any of my prices don’t reflect what everyone else is asking please PM and so I can fix it. I like to keep communications quick so if I don’t hear back from you 48 hours after I send a PM/email than I reserve the right to sell the item to a different buyer. I have positive feedback on Fourthirdsphoto, FredMiranda, Pentax forums and GetDPI as Albino_BlacMan and on eBay as ctp046.

    Nikon AF-S 400mm f2.8 D II
    Price: $4200 shipped
    Glass: Clean and clear, no scratches fungus or haze. Minor internal dust. Overall this thing looks nice (sorry for any dust in the photos, a front element that big isn’t fun to clean and I try to touch it as little as possible)
    Aperture: Snappy and oil free
    AF: Very fast and accurate
    Focus: Smooth and quiet
    Cosmetics: Overall fairly good. Some wear and tear (this wasn’t a shelf queen, it was used) but nothing to suggest signs of abuse.
    Accessories: CF lens hood (shows some scratches), lens case (CT-402, no keys to it though), Wimberley low profile foot (no original foot), Nikon strap, rear cap (no front cap)
    Notes: Lens located in Canada, I’m not sure if it’s a Canadian or US lens, I assume most places can fix it if it ever needs repairs since it’s been around a while.

    Wimberley Head Version II (WH-200)
    Price: $450 shipped
    Function: everything functions smoothly, awesome gimbal
    Cosmetics: Shows definite signs of use, small scratches over a lot of the head, some paint loss around the edges, nothing that affects function though
    Accessories: None

    Canon FD 300mm f2.8L
    Some people would call this lens “user condition”. I like to think of this thing as instant street cred.
    Price: $650 shipped
    Glass: A few small scratches/cleaning marks (see pictures). Also some big internal dirt spots. I don’t think they are fungus (they aren’t spidery). They may just be dirt from use or may be some internal paint flaking off. Lots of internal dust. This would make a killer shallow DOF portrait lens.
    Note it comes with the filter holder but not a Canon 48mm UV filter. You can get a B+W brand one for less than $40.
    Aperture: Snappy and oil free
    Focus: Fairly smooth, possibly a little loose (I don’t know what resistance the focus had when new). Resistance might be slightly uneven in some spots but nothing major. Focus limiter works well.
    Cosmetics: See pictures. Instant street cred machine. You’ll look like a working pro. Note that the rear section of the lens (where the camera mounts) moves freely. There is usually a locking mechanism allowing 4 different positions of rotation. That has been disabled on this lens. I don’t think it will interfere with shooting (this was done on purpose by the previous owner) but it is something to keep in mind.
    Accessories: Rear cap (no lens hood, no case, no front cap, and no clip on lens hood). Also does not come with a drop in UV filter but does come with the filter holder. Rear section (where camera mounts) rotates freely as locking mechanism was disabled by previous owner. Built in lens hood has ding in it (see pictures).
    Notes: Lens does not come with the tripod seen in pictures.
    Notes on Canon FD: this is a Canon FD lens and not a Canon EOS lens. The lens does not have AF and can only be used on mirrorless cameras with adapters. It can also be used on Canon EOS bodies with an expensive adapter.

    Nikon 500mm f8 Reflex-Nikkor (newer version)
    This is pretty much the king of mirror lenses
    Price: $350 shipped
    Glass: Clean and clear, no scratches fungus or haze. It’s an older lens so it has some dust.
    Aperture: Doesn’t have one (and that’s the way it’s supposed to be)
    Focus: Smooth with the classic “one finger focus” that Kenny R loves so much
    Cosmetics: Overall very good (especially for the age of this lens), no major scratches or anything. Maybe some light marks if you look close enough but I can’t see many signs of use. The front cap is in decent condition, the case is in fairly good condition and 4 of the 5 filters haven’t even been taken out of their wrapping (or they were put back in there, I can’t tell 100% and I’ll leave them packed up)
    Accessories: Front and rear caps, hardcase, 5 original 39mm filters
    Notes: No clue if it’s Canadian or American lens, I doubt it matters due to the age of the lens.
