    Nikon made several versions of the 300mm lens. I picked this near mint copy a couple of months ago for $160. I have not any nicer ones at the local camera stores since.

    I am very pleased with the results so far.

    Start looking soon, the price on manual Nikkor lenses appears to be rising with the release of the new Nikon DSLR. I was out shopping around and saw another 300 that was much less than mint selling for $60 more than I paid for mine. My other favorite Nikkors to use with u4/3 are the 105/2.5 and the 55/2.8 Micro. The 50/1.8 is also good.
