My 70-300 with caps/hood/box etc

After a year with this great lens I have decided to lighten my camera bag slightly, so my 70-300 is for sale.

It is in good clean condition, no problems with mechanics or optics that I can detect. It has both caps, the lens hood plus the original box and papers.



I am a fan of this lens, and I waxed lyrical about it on my blog http://snaarman.blogspot.com/2011/01/crop.html however it's a bit too heavy for me these days and I don't think I am cut out to be a bird photographer

So, I'm looking for 185 which includes Insured Delivery by Royal Mail (UK mainland only... sorry). I would prefer Paypal payment..

Any questions, drop me a PM..

Thanks for looking

Pete

Pete, I'm almost tempted to buy it as a replacement for my own 70-300mm. Nothing at all wrong with mine on the surface, but yours is obviously a much better lens judging by the pictures you've taken with it!

Ok, I will confess the secret of my success. I book photo weekends with Joe Cornish, and when he's not looking.... I borrow his memory card and clone it.

The rest is simple
