    This is that kit lens that came with my camera, which I have no use for anymore. It's got a couple small cosmetic blemishes (shown below), but the glass is in great condition and it takes great photos. I'm asking $85 plus PayPal fees and shipping OBO. The lens comes with the original Nikon front lens cap, 3rd party rear cap, and a Kenko 52mm warming filter w/case.

    Like I said, the lens still produces fine pictures:

    I know selling a basic kit lens is a bit of a stretch, but I feel like someone wants it for the right price.

    Lowered the asking price. Feel free to make an offer, as well.

    Sorry guys, the lens is sold. I got $75 for it locally, which is more than the offers I was getting on here and I didn't have to ship. I hope you won't think too poorly of me.
