300mm f/2.8 AIS IF-ED Nikkor (Older Version)

£450.00

The item photographed may not be the actual model but is used for illustrative purposes only.

Unboxed.

This premier manual focus 300mm lens was introduced in 1982. It offers an extraordinary large maximum aperture for its focal length.

Large maximum aperture of f/2.8 provides bright and easy-to-focus images in the viewfinder and allows photography in very dim light.

Compressed perspective and extremely shallow depth of field.

Internal focusing (IF) design permits easy handling and quick, accurate, silky-smooth focusing without any extension in the lens barrel.

Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass insures crisp images free of chromatic aberration.

Focusing ring can be present so it will stop it at particular distant setting for rapid refocusing.

Built-in telescopic (bayonet-type) lens hood and 360° rotatable tripod socket collar.

Please note that the following important points when you see our grading description. When applied to lenses it means that the optics are in perfect condition. What we are describing is the cosmetic condition of the lens barrel. When it applies to cameras, motor drives, speedlights etc. the understanding is that the item is in perfect working order and the description would mean the exterior appearance. In other words we are judging cosmetic appearance.
