The photo looks squished to me. It's roughly the size and shape of a 600/4 or 400/2.8, but a bit bigger. And noticeably heavier!

What do you estimate the final sale price will be???????????????
If it were a REGULAR auction (not live) I'd estimate a higher final price. My guess is $3,000 -4,000.
I'm more interested in TC-14C, as it's a much more rare item IMHO. I wonder how much better than TC-14b it is....?
You must have an idea of where the price of this lens is headed?
What do you think?
