I had a heart breaking accident last week with my 55-200mm VR lens when I dropped it on the ground, the images are now very poor with ghosting reflections and the AF is broken, being my longest lens I cannot do anymore birding

I'm really interested to find out if anyone is selling a used AF-S 70-300mm VR lens at a reasonable price so I can get back into my birding. Ebay has brand new ones for sale but I cannot afford it..
