NOW SOLD: Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II Prime Lens

UPDATE: This lens is now sold.

I have decided to sell my awesome 300mm f/2.8 Prime Lens. I’d rather not, but I rarely use this lens and I am planning some upgrades and printing equipment purchases. This lens is widely known as one of the sharpest, fastest focusing sports and wildlife lenses on the market. It also is the “fast” version with a maximum aperture of f/2.8. It is a Full Frame Lens and will therefore work on both Nikon Full Frame (FX) and Crop (DX) camera bodies.

Common Toad Waiting in Ambush

Just had a great few minutes watching a Common Toad wedged between 2 rocks in the garden ambushing any Beetles in his range.

I grabbed the camera but as I was only working with light from my garden flood light it was difficult to get a pin sharp photo due to his throat movement and no chance of a tongue out ambush shot.
