Hello; I have an AF-S Nikkor ED 600mm f/4 D with metal case, etc. It's in excellent condition, takes amazing images and I love it. However, I would really like to trade this lens in for a Nikkor 400mm f/2.8 FL. This will definitely work better for me for birds and sports. I've read that the large photo stores in NYC probably won't allow much for any trade in despite bragging that they do. Since I've come by this information as pure rumor, does anyone here have any experience with trade in policies, anywhere, not necessarily NYC stores? If a trade in is not possible, then I suppose the recommendation would be to sell it outright on Ebay and use the cash toward the other. A hassle. Since I will have to saw off one of my arms and one of my legs to do this trade anyway, I'm hoping someone with more experience with trade ins might have a better suggestion.
Thanks for any help!
