Advice needed

Hello,

I have the opportunaty to buy a 2nd hand Nikkor 300 f2.8. for only €850.

Is there somebody who can tell me if this is a good deal and if the lens I'm talking about is AF?
I'm thinking about replacing this one for my 300 f/4....should I go for it?

Here is the link to the lens: http://audio-tv-foto.marktplaats.nl/fotografie-lenzen-en-objectieven/436360953-nikon-300mm-f2-8-300-mm-f-2-8.html

Thanks in advance

Re: Advice needed

Why don't you send the seller an email and ask wich version it is? I'm pretty sure it's not an AFS version, so Nikon TC are no go.

Re: Advice needed

Can it be use with any TC's at all?, and will it be only manual focus then?

Only MF with Nikon TC's, but it wil AF with the Kenko TC. ( if it is an AF lens; I can't see that on the picture. )

It is a first generation AF lens so it should autofocus with the KENKO 1.4 TC.

Re: Advice needed

I always wondered why a lens would need to be 'serviced' as stated by the seller. I'm no expert, but as a buyer I would question that. I mean if the lens worked well and was clean then you wouldn't need it to be serviced... or am I wrong. After this big service of his, he used the lens once or twice before putting it up on MP.

I am an expert on buying on MP tho and plenty of good as well as bad buys and sells.

Good luck
