    Add this to your wish list LOL. I was reading the new issue of Shutterbug and read the special report section. New Lenses:

    Sigma is coming out with a new lens a 200-500mm f/2.8..
    200 -500 2.8!!!!!!! It weights about 35 pounds and will have an MSRP of.... $24,500

    Just think with a 2X on it 1000mm f/5.6 Wow, just wow

    Or you could just buy a car and drive closer to what you're shooting.
    ...and have money left over.



    Just kidding, I'd love to have one of those.

    No self respecting stalker would drive closer, just buy a bigger lens.

    This reminds me of the CIA taking down Carlos the Jackal. They had set up surveillance a 1/4 mile away with a Nikon 1000mm in an apartment and the wiseacre behind the camera took a shot of his mouth

    ...just the mouth.

    Well if you think about it. Sports photographers use the 600mm /f4.0
    This is a 100mm less but at /f2.8

    Good bird/ wildlife lens. Now the 2x = 1000mm might be over kill LOL

    Guys, you're so silly. That's not a camera lens, it's the new Hummer H4. Looks like it gets 6 miles per gallon.
