Re: Cheap reach

Most of the sellers in Japan try to be truthful. They usually go into great detail on the condition  of a lens they are selling. They usually list any defects the lens might have. If you see a lens that interests you, ask questions if you don't see what you are looking for in the description. I have bought many lenses from Japan and have been happy with them. Sometimes Japanese dealers have easier access to lenses that are hard to find in the states.

For that longer lens on a budget, you might be able to find a Nikkor 300mm f/4 Afs if you get lucky, if not the version that came out before that lens was the AF ED 300 f/4. It is a little slower than the Afs version but I have seen them go for less than what you have in the budget. I have had one since about 2006, and it still does a nice job. Happy hunting.
