    No problem. Good luck and definitely keep us posted. It will be interesting to hear your thoughts on the quality of that lens vs. their pricing. Maybe I just had a couple instances of bad luck (and I certainly hope that is the case since there are so many favorable reviews for Keh).

    Nikkor 200-400 vr1?
    Received the Nikkor 200-400 VR from KEH last evening. It was rated EX+, meaning 90-96% of Original condition and it looks like new!
    Im still testing and tuning but it's pretty close.

    Here's one of the first images and it was shot with the 1.4 teleconverter.

    I forgot to mention how buttery smooth the zoom ring is! That is my biggest complaint about the Sigma 150-600 C, the zoom ring is sticky and chatters and just sucks.

    I would say the focus speed is about the same, pretty quick. Build quality on the Nikkor is on another level!

    The tripod ring on the Sigma was also awful, so bad I couldn't rotate it to portrait from my monopod.
    The tripod ring on the Nikkor is perfect, smooth with just the right amount of tension and the foot is Arca/Swiss compatible!

    The VR, at least through the lens actually seems better on the older Nikon. I don't use it much anyway but it was almost imperceptible on the Sigma.

    I never got this kind of sharpness from my Sigma. The bokeh is on another level also.
