  1. Is this for real? If it is - Wow! This is wild stuff.
    It weighs 220 lbs. And note the red arrow and camera.
    Makes me want to switch over to Canon now! :biggrin: But I will wait till they can come out with the f2.8 version.....

    Oh I love the spotting scope on top of the lens. I would like someone to shoot with this bad boy handheld.

    The question is, when you are carrying it, do you just let it hang from the camera, or should you support the lens somehow.
  3. Strangely enough, I could use a lens like that! :wink:
  4. I'm sure you would man... and I know exactly how... :wink:

    Just think of the optical clarity you could get from a subject 12 miles away. All that haze and pollution does such wonders for image quality. Minimum focus dist about 360'? A really useful product........I guess it's one of those if you have to ask how much, you can't afford it. Then again, this may be what I need to make the switch, this lens and the digital Rebel, that would be a killer combo, you think?

    You were the first person I thought of when reading about this lens. This could help you achieve some cash making images.
