New these are over 5k, so it will be interesting to see what it goes for.

Re: 300mm on ebay

Hmmm, there are three missing 43mm drop-in filters - two ND filters and the polariser, which has a neat holder so you can rotate it from the outside.

These would be expensive to replace.

But at least the hood is included - that's 599 to replace!

The normal selling price for a new 300 f/2.8 is around 5,500.

I have two here in the office! Patiently waiting to be hired out to e-group members in the near future!

Re: 300mm on ebay

I`ve seen this, but am not at all tempted even the bidding did`nt go much higher, as it sounds like it`s been very neglected!

Must say I have never used the filters with mine. May try them one day
Someone could get a bargain here.

I'm inclined to agree with you

It's now at 1,550.00 with a day and a half left before the auction closes, it'll be interesting to see what it fetches.

Re: 300mm on ebay

It's not the sort of thing that sells easily if the reserve is high, which it must have been. I was concurrently watching a secondhand Manfrotto 234RC head which went for 27 plus 3 p&p at a time when there was a UK dealer with a buy it now price of 26.99 including p&p for a new one. Some people.....

I think even with the missing bag and filters, if the lens is in good condition, 2000 is a good price for the other lens.
