    I always suggestion the usual places, eBay, Amazon and Facebook marketplace. Also does Nikon sell refurbished lenses directly through their website or do they have an authorized retailed?

      Nikon has them, $400 off new.
      I found one on Craigslist.

        Ole, I've got one of those and must say it's my least favorite Nikkor. Slow to AF and quite difficult to get it to lock on focus to anything moving. I use the 70-200/2.8 with the 2x extender and get similar results, but at least I'm carrying one less lens. On my last junket I cut down my lens carry to 14/2.8 prime, 50/1.4 prime, 16-35, 24-70, 70-200 plus extender, plus Mavic Pro - so only about 20kgs of carry-on!

          Maurie,
          I ended up getting one of these, Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G AF-S VR Nikkor ED Lens.

          Its the same as this, Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G AF VR Nikkor ED Lens, but it has the "S" in it.
          It is light years ahead of the Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G AF VR Nikkor ED Lens. This lens sucked, it did everything you say it did, the new model of that is MUCH better.
          I usually use an Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR II Autofocus Zoom Lens and it does the trick for most stuff.

            Ole,
            That's interesting. Must check that out when I "get back from the islands" :-)
            I use FX bodies so need the bigger (heavier) lenses.
