    FS: Nikon 200/2 VRII + extras!

    Price reduced from $ 4399 to $ 3800 , see below!!

    Up for sale is my Nikkor 200/2 VRII in like new external condition selling together with some extras! You may ask why are you selling this lens of lens, bokeh king? The reason is simple,..I purchased Canon 200/2L for my Sony A7r which gives me aperture control and stabilisation. So Nikon must find a new home. Lens elements are clean, focusing ring smooth, stabilisation works OK.

    ********************************
    PRICE REDUCED TO $ 3800 ( or 3440 EUR):
    --> We test the lens on my friendīs D810 and AF-S motor starts squeaking while beginning to autofocus, on next photos it disappeared. With TC-20E III it worked ok without squeaking. Except for squeaking the AF works OK, focusing spot-on !

    For squeaking of AF-S motor I found some threads and itīs look like that itīs quite frequent problem with several lenses (200-400, 500/4,300/4,..) :
    300mm f/4 AFS squeak or whistle?: Nikon SLR Lens Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review
    Squeaking 200-400VR - FM Forums
    300mm f/4 AF-S squeak question - FM Forums
    Squeaking sound from AF-S 500mm F4 II - Photo.net Nikon Forum

    From these discussions results that squeaking can be from longer AF nonusage of the lens which was my case, I used it MF on Sony A7r only. I asked Nikon service centre in Germany how much can cost the repair (it can be problem with lubrication or need to replace AF-S motor modul) and they wrote me it can be 400-650 EUR. So this is the only reason why I reduced the price for the price of eventual repair.
    Here is what they wrote: http://imageshack.com/a/img922/755/ofEGiD.jpg

    Comes together with drop-in CPL (C-PL3L), carbon fibre Nikon HK-30 lens hood which is better,slimmer. THere is an arca-swiss style lens foot replacement from HejnarPhoto. Much better handling than with original one. You can pack the lens with genuine lens hood without problems. See pictures below..

    SELLING ONLY TOGETHER AS ONE COMPLETE PACKAGE WITH EXTRAS. Preferred shipping to EU countries due to full insurance shipped with courier to Europe countries. Iīam open to ship to US or other countries but I canīt get full insurance with post services and UPS or FedEx are extremely costly in my country. So if you want the lens I can ship it outside the EU but you will pay the shipping costs.

    Asking price: 3440 EUR or 3800 USD including shipping price in EU, parcel shipped from Czech Republic with courier. Total price reflects addition of extras for lower price.
    Payment: Money bank transfer or PayPal (you pay fees -> add 3% of total price)
