    Its a joke guy.

    I would agree that maybe I put this in the wrong section.

    If you look up my posts, you will see that I am usually very much on topic and serious.

    Good pic by the way, thats one hardcore photographer there lol. :thumbup:

    Don't think I understand....

    Do you mean other people joked about this lens, or are you talking about serious threads about it?

    More jokes of course ;) very very few can afford a lens like this ;)

    And the handheld pic of Juza is semi legenary - have a look at the amazon page for this lens on the USamazon site.

    In the end it is the only f2.8 500mm lens on the market

    LOL Not sure. I guess it would depend on what your comfortable carrying. I know this, with the kind of attention it will get, it's not going to be to big to be a walk away lens if you know what I mean. Buy lots of insurance for it and you.

    Yeah, perhaps the troll link was a bit much...seemed appropriately snarky at the time.

    I remember someone else (Derrel, perhaps?) posting that pic recently in another thread. Anyway, that thing weighs 34.6 lbs (almost 16 kg) and costs US$28k. I'd rather buy a good car (new).

    Ya it would seem that most people would also need to buy a new tripod that could take the weight of this beast.

    I hear that the Canon 1200mm came with its own tripod. For what it costs, I would expect them to include one!

    I guess I would like to have one lol. Its just so far from practical, and I don't exactly have 30 grand burning a hole in my pocket.
