I saw that a week or so ago.
But no price.
Maybe I don't want to know either

I wonder if it comes with a gorilla to carry it:>))))

Godzima is the name ! - Godzilla's mother, lol.

I expect it'll be around $6-7000 if its available in HK. The 300-800 is about $4500 here.

p.s. I WANT one!!! And I am going to train my son as my caddy!

I've seen it referred to as "Sigzilla." Whatever, it's a monster of a lens! There is another thread about it somewhere on the Cafe, too.....

Question is, what kind of tripod/gimbal head could support this monster?
GImbal? You goota be kidding me! I am mounting it on the machine gun mount of my Hummer!

Actually I've already made a Gimbal for it! Milled from solid stainless steel and 3mm thick tubes. And dual ball bearings too!

Wow...

Great lens, great gimbal...

Is that true that it isn't motorized nor stabilized? I guess to move all this glass, battery will discharge soon... Probably you should add also an outer power pack... :)
My guess: weight: about 10-15 kg (just thinking to 600 F4 which is almost 7 kgs)
Cost: from 15 to 18k$

All the best
