This is a highly collectible lens and one of the few lenses to actually be going up in price!
It is also the only lens of its kind that I've seen in the UK in the last 12 months, as there were only 7,000 of these made worldwide and the few examples I see nowadays are either in America or Japan, so if you want to avoid import tax etc. bid on this lens, as it's already in the UK!
The lens is in very good condition, but the A-M ring switch (made of plastic) had a crack in it (a common defect), so I've just had it replaced (at great expense by FIXATION, LONDON) and had the lens serviced (by FIXATION, LONDON), so it is in tip-top A1 condition. There are a few tiny surface scratches on the distance window, but these can polish out with Displex plastiuc polish if they bother you, as they are very fine and are from normal use.
There is lots to say about this lens, but noone can say it better than Ken Rockwell. Read his review here: http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/2814af.htm
I am selling the this legendary lens as I am upgrading my body to a D800 and I have decided to switch from fixed lenses to zooms (I'll probably go for a 24-70 and a 70-200 to start!)
It does not have a box, but will come with both front and rear lens covers.
I will chuck in a well used Lowe Pro lens pouch (these last forever!), and I will include a Hoya Skylight filter (minor scratches) to keep the lens safe in transit.
I will also include a copy of the service receipt from Fixation dated today!
Payment to be made my Paypal, or I'll accept cash if you're able to meet me in Central London.
Serious bidders only.
Good luck and please ask any questions before the end of the auction!
