Two Gems!

What’s Up?

I spent some quality time with the Mother’s Day colt and its folks this morning, again being sure to stay on the road. I am almost finished with the RawDigger e-Guide.

I was glad to see that almost all of the price-slashed items sold within a day or two including and especially Anita North’s Nikon 600 VR and Dennis Westover’s Nikon D5. I used that combination with the TC-E14 to create today’s featured image. There is a lesson there that I will be sharing with y’all here soon …

Gem #1

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED VR Lens (with extras)

BAA friend and skilled photographer Dr. Greg Gulbransen is offering a Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED VR lens in like-new condition (with extras) for a very handsome $9296.95. As the lens was only used six times and Greg take great care of his gear, the front element is immaculate as is the entire lens. This one is a gem. The sale includes the original product box, the lens trunk, the strap, the front cover, the rear lens cap, the original lens foot, a RRS LCF-18 Replacement Foot for NIKON AF-S 500mm & 600mm f/4E FL ED VR lenses (a $120.00 value — installed), and insured ground shipping via major courier to lower-48 US addresses only. Your item will not ship until your check clears unless other arrangements are made.

Please contact Greg via e-mail. Photos are available upon request.

In all systems, the 600 f/4 lenses are the weapons of mass destruction when it comes to birds and wildlife. I loved my Nikon 600 both alone and with the 1.4X teleconverter. If you use Nikon gear and have been dreaming of moving up to the big leagues, do get in touch with Greg ASAP to save #3,000.00; this lens sells new for $12,296.95. artie

This image was created (by me) on the morning of February 18, 2018 on the spoonbill boat with the Induro GIT 304L/Mongoose M3.6-mounted Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED VR lens, the Nikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E III, and the Nikon D5 DSLR Camera (Body Only, Dual XQD Slots). ISO 400. Matrix metering +2/3 stop off the blue sky: 1/2500 sec. at f/7.1. AWB at 7:50am on a clear day.
