BTW, this is an older lens I picked up used at Adorama for $450.00 in new condition. It is the older AF model, not the new AF-S model (that one sells for around $1500.00.
The holy grail of lenses for me would be the Nikkor 600mm F4 VR AF-S. I'd have to sell my bikes and my jeep to be able to afford it though as it is a $10,000.00 lens.
This is the setup I wish I had (found on flickr)
