    I bought it secondhand last year to shoot wildlife on a holiday and haven't used it since. I'm not sure about the history before that. The serial number is 72703147, which indicates its manufacture date is Dec 2010.

    Sorry, too low. I don't doubt some have sold around that price, but I've also seen some sell for £250+ and I'm including extras.

    Thanks for being honest about previous owners.

    But Im afraid that a possibly grey lens thats 3 years old and which is now available for under £233 new with 2 year warranty is not worth anywhere near £260 in my opinion, even with a couple of Hoya filters.

    I too would normally only offer two hundred, but as you have already refused an offer of that amount I will make a onetime final offer of £210 including delivery to Halstead in north essex.

    If nothing else it may smoke someone more generous out the bushes for you !!! lol

    Fair enough, but I think I will hold out and try my luck for a better offer.
