Be forewarned this will be a grey market product FWIW. So if it breaks you can pretty much throw it out. But still a very good price, even sweeter if you have the 8% eBay bucks offer

I've had this lens for over a decade. It's built like a tank, and is optically pretty good as well.

I grabbed one also just in case I photograph people. Mostly shoot with my 500 F4 and 300 F2.8. however I wanted to let people know it is going to be a grey market lens as it won't be serviced by Nikon USA if it does fail. I got 8.40 in eBay bucks so net cost was $75...

On DX camera (1.5x crop sensor) this lens would be equivalent to 75mm f2.8

On a Sony A6X00 with a FR F-Mount adapter this lens is the equivalent of a 50mm f1.2.

Pretty much this seller only sells grey market. The first way to tell is the price is below Nikon pricing at authorized dealer which is 131.95 at the moment...

The field of view is affected by the sensor size, but the aperture would still be the same. So equivalent to 75mm f/1.8.

Not true, focal length and aperture to be multiplied by crop factor for DX
