Nikon Nikkor 70-200mm f/4 VR (III) ED AF-S FX or DX

Just testing water for now. Have this lens since 2013, bought new from retail. Have its original box, hood, front and rear caps, instruction manual and of course the gold box too.

Claimed to have 5-stop improvement VR (this lens has Nikon latest 3rd gen vibration reduction technology). I have shot many pictures in near complete darkness, ISO6400, f/4, 1/60 to 1/100 @ 200mm handhold, and pictures turned out great! This is SO MUCH more portable than the f/2.8 (VR-I or VR-II) variant (even when compared to the old AF/AF-D/AF-S 80-200mm f/2.8). With ISO boost, in modern cameras, I'd rather have the lightness in the lens than the 1 extra stop for negligible bokeh between 2.8 and 4.

Compared to 70-200 f/2.8 VR-II, this f/4 is nearly 30mm shorter, over 700 grams lighter (~50%). And yes, the price is about half of a used 2.8 VR2 too.

Asking $1200. Located near Bayview Village. Price is pretty firm as I am not in need to sell it. Pictures can be available on request (too lazy for now).

Long time BST Trader on RFD. Buy with confidence. Lowballers will be ignored. I welcome real inquiries and happy to have a photo-talk too =) and you can try the lens out.
