Used Price Nikkor 70 200 VR 1
Mar 10, 2010

Simple question- How much would you pay?

We all know lens prices have jumped over the last few years, making nikkor equipment seem like a fair investment if you bought in at the right time! I paid ~$900 for my 80-200 2 ring and now they sell new for $1100. I want to use teleconverters now, so I'm in the market for the 70-200 VR1 hoping to pick up a used one from somebody upgrading. They were selling for $1650-1700 from BH etc and now the only available new stock goes for just shy of $2000! I've seen ads for individuals pawning off 2-3 year old 70-200 vr1's for $1600. Essentially they used the lens for a full two years (in some cases making a living with it) for a net cost of $50!
