Mwhhahhaa, nice joke.
VR III with 5.5 stops?
Arca style tripod foot from Nikon?
The homemade CAD model of a lens with a big front lens and getting tall just behind the front lens?
A zoom ring that zooms from 100 to 500 in only 45 degrees?
Yes, the "home made" cad model is quite evident, as is the same distance about focal lenghts, but of course such lens would be really interesting, isn't it? The only "strange" thing is that 5.5 stops with the OB (=on board?) that looks a real tech derived stuff
But the best part is that it photographs around corners !!! The front lens element is not on the same plane as the rear mount appears to be on.
Manual focus ring is very small and way up front.
Verdict, 16 year old tech/art student job.
