NOW LISTED ON eBay - please move to external sales.
SAL70200G SSM on eBay.com.au with a start price of AU$1940 (approx US$1,314, or Eu.1,186, or GBP1,086 at today's rates).
For Dyxum members only, I'm asking AU$1,800.00 (approx US$1,218, or Eu.1,088, or GBP1,009 at today's rates), plus insured trackable postage at cost to be borne by the buyer. I'll post world-wide. Obviously if anyone local is the buyer, the lens can be tested, picked up and paid for on delivery.
Payment can be by electronic funds transfer. If paying by PayPal, I would ask the buyer to cover PayPal's fees.
If interested, PM me.

I've owned it since I purchased it new 9 years ago and I'm only selling it because I was able to purchase a new SAL70200G2 at a red hot price quite recently.
It has been very well cared for, and the front element has always been protected by a UV filter, but that has now migrated to my new SAL70200G2 and is not part of the sale.
No dust, haze or scratches on lens elements, clean and snappy shutter blades, quick silent and sure Super-Sonic Motor (SSM) focus. The only signs of wear are some paint scuffs on the detachable tripod mount collar as per the photos.
Comes in its original factory packaging with all the original bits - soft leatherette carry case (never used), front and rear lens caps, reversible lens hood with sliding hatch for adjusting circular polarising filter when fitted, and manuals.
I had actually listed and sold it on eBay but the purchaser returned it because of a little squeaking when focussing - something I'd never experienced. So when it was returned, I sent it off to Digicam, Sony's official service agency in Adelaide, and they advised that the SSM mechanism should be replaced, which I then authorised. They dismantled the unit, removed the circuit board and switch block and replaced the SSM unit with a new one. Then performed alignment, cleaned the unit and optics, cleaned the exterior and tested the unit.
Their factory refurbishment is warranted for 12 months from 26 June 2019, when the work was completed.
So it's now good as new, but for the cosmetic paint scuffs on the tripod mount collar.
For anyone wanting more reach, the lens works fully automatically with the Sony 1.4x as well as the 2.0x APO teleconverters. The 1.4x T/C delivers excellent image quality. The IQ with 2.0x T/C is less sharp, but manageable if stopped down.

Any questions, please PM me.
