    If it is not on Sigmaphoto.com, they are not selling it, or it is special order only.

    Ask Sigma directly, you have contact info on their site.

    Tripod? I hear Kenworth makes a few... lol

    That reminds me of the Sigma 350-1200mm f11.0 APO MF lens that they made back in the 80's. It was only 24.5 lbs.

    I used it a couple of times (I worked in a camera shop that was using it in a Sigma display), it was not that bad optically ... but you better have a really good tripod to keep it still.

    They even made a 1.4x TC for it.

    In Japan you can buy the lens in several shops. The price would be around USD24779, although the yen is quite strong at the moment. Sadly none of the shops that are having it are in my vicinity, else I'd go and mount it on my D80, just for fun.

    Trust me, if you can afford this lens, you can afford to buy a BMW Mini and use it as the tripod with wheels for it... lol
