Lens would be mint but a few small marks, especially one that
looks like it bumped something and left a light and unobtrusive
impression in the black finish (not a dent). I've looked at
lenses in camera stores with more marks on them. I think I have
the box and manual here somewhere. I've owned this lens for many
years (since new) but very seldom used it in the field. Glass is
mint and unmarked (no handling or cleaning marks, very very little
dust). The aperture blades move crisply and have no trace of oiling.
Has original rear cap and a nice Nikon metal screw in front cap.
Of course it includes a removable and rotatable tripod collar. And
razor sharp Nikon optics in a lightweight package. Asking $425.
Addenda: I can't lay my hands on the box, but will include it if
I find it, and will throw in a tube type lens case that holds the lens
without the tripod collar, or one that holds both with the tripod
collar removed and stowed inside with the lens, your choice.
