    Nikon 35mm AF Lenses & Other Nikon Equipment

    After much soul searching, I've decided that (at least until my next buying spree) I'm keeping my Nikon manual focus equipment, but going to Canon for autofocus. (Not a value judgment, but because I've got access to new Canon equipment at work.)

    So, I'm getting rid of my base set of Nikon AF lenses, as well as of my Nikon digital SLR.

    Everything in this listing is:
    • lightly used
    • very nice
    • perfectly clean
    • and functions perfectly.

    I bought all of it new, mostly from B&H.

    I prefer Paypal, but don't really mind waiting on a money order to get here if you prefer. I ship to North America only.

    To keep things simple, I'm offering free shipping and fees in the U.S.; shipping to Canada would be $10-$15 more, I imagine (except for the big kit, which is probably $25-$30 more).

    I'm much more inclined to sell to APUG members that I've seen around the forums than to people who sign up just to buy. For what it's worth, my auction site feedback is 100 percent positive. My id on the massive auction site is: classicphotographydude. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    THE LIST
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    1. Nikon Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.8
    2. Nikon Nikkor AF 28mm f/2.8 D
    3. Nikon Nikkor AF 85mm f/1/8
    4. Tamron AF 90mm MACRO Nikon mount - Made in Japan
    5. 52mm Coklin Circular Polarizer

    THE ITEMS
    ============================================
    1. Nikon Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.8
    Price: $75 plus free shipping in U.S.


    This is a well-known entity, so no need to say much. I bought it in 2001, I think. Includes caps, box.

    2. Nikon Nikkor AF 28mm f/2.8 D
    Price: $125 plus free shipping in U.S.

    Also well-known, also bought around 2001. Also includes caps, box.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    3. Nikon Nikkor AF 85mm f/1.8
    Price: $350 plus free shipping in U.S.


    This is the one so many folks are after after, especially since the affordable Nikon full frame digitals arrived. Includes hood, caps as shown. No box, because I never thought I'd sell it. Bought new by me around 2003 or so.

    4. Tamron AF 90mm MACRO Nikon mount - Made in Japan
    Price: $300 plus free shipping


    You'll have to read some reviews about the Tamron lenses from this era to get an idea of the excellent build quality. Metal mounts, screws, all the old-school traits. The optics don't disappoint either. Like other macro (micro) lenses, it can tend to search a lot on unlimited auto-focus, but I used it for macro work, so not an issue. Bought new by me around 2000 for some very specialized work, but kept around because I liked it. Includes, hood, caps, padded bag.

    5. 52mm Coklin Circular Polarizer
    Price: $25 plus free shipping


    Fits the 50mm standard lens.

    6. Nikon D90 18mm-55mm AF-S VR kit - Only 2289 shutter activations
    Price: $550 plus free shipping


    Easy to read all about this combo, including the Vibration Reduction lens. This one is barely used and comes with everything, including original boxing, manuals in English and Spanish, battery, battery charger, software, etc. Also has a wireless shutter release. I got this as my digital camera but now have been assigned a Canon at work, so I haven’t used this one much.

    7. Nikon SB-400 Flash
    Price: $80 plus free shipping


    Not a big fan of shoe-mounted flash, but bought this little unit to photograph a book signing where I need just a touch more pop in a big space. Worked OK for the purpose, with Publishers Weekly using a photo (the girl playing guitar):

    Virtually new. Comes with everything. Has 'flashed" perhaps 100 or fewer times.
