    Selling a barely used Nikon 85mm 1.4 AF-D lens. All original packaging minus the warranty card and instruction book (sorry can't find them). Lens looks gorgeous with barely a mark on it. Glass is mint with a minimal internal dust. I barely used the lens and it shows. Some marks and one nick in the paint finish on the metal hood. Bought from B&H. Here's the link

    Buy mine and save more than $300 including tax. Looking to get $950 (includes shipping in the US)

    The link shows B&H for $969 new, or $879.95 used. ?

    $969 is for a grey market not US lens. Nikon will not service or provide warranty repair for a grey market lens. Best of luck if you get one of those

    Maybe I priced it too high. Price lowered to $850

    Just FYI when I click your link above it brings up the grey market lens at B&H at $969.

    And so....what warranty does yours come with? ;-)

    Please try to be rude and condescending on someone else's thread.

    He brings up a good point though. Even buying "gray" through B&H they have their own return policy if the lens has issues. Seems like a no brainer to go with the B&H lens.

    Wow, so very tempting.

    How can you tell that link is grey market?

    I bought a mint G version from KEH for $450 ish last year. It was mint, box and all. It wasn't a deal, just a fair value. I also bought a (new) Sigma 105 OS) macro F2.8 for $7xx from B&H. I think you should look at the real market before you throw out a price.

    The lens market is not like the body market, as you still have options for new.

    This is the F1.4 version. The f1.4G version sells for over close to $1600 new. Either KEH made a mistake or more likly you've made a mistake. If you got a 1.4G lens for $450 from KEH then that is the deal of the century

    It says "imported" directly under the price.
