Today I had lens lust in a BIG way

    Whilst I was at Grays of Westminster picking up my 85/1.4, Uri Zakay (a very knowledgable person) asked me if I would like to see a couple of special things he had bought in his last trip around the world.

    First up was a brand new, never been out of the box, 800mm f/5.6 lens. What a beautiful, heavyweight chunk of glass. I had never seen one of these before and I probably never will again, and it is very rare indeed to see a brand spanking new one. I could see me at the local lake with that lens :smile:

    Second was the 8mm fisheye. Wow, what a beautiful feat of engineering and that front element is amazing. It is very heavy and I would be fearful of knocking that front lens element, which looks jet black when you view it. Totally impractical probably, but what a great looking lens.

    Just as a heads up, they do have an immaculate 28mm f/1.4 that hasn't hit the used section of their website yet :eek:
