Pffffttttt.... That's not a lens...


^^^^^ THAT is what I call a lens...

Yep, it's that amazingly HUGE Sigma 200-500mm/f2.8 again this time being tested in the field.

It's funny reading his review, even without the 2x teleconverter (that makes it a 400-1000mm zoom) he has to stand 15 meters/49 feet away to take a photo of the subject.

Oh yah, this thing is also 35lbs of awesome.

If that's not all, check out the travel case the thing comes with.

But for $34,000US MSRP, I don't think I'll be seeing that lens around anytime soon. Though if I do, I may just have to salute it... you know... out of fear that it's a rocket launcher.

And just to continue the ridiculousness, Canon makes a made-to-order 1200mm/F5.6L Lens.

At a whopping, $99,000 US price tag. O_o Why in God's name would you need something like that? Well, check out the link and you can see, that you can literally take a photo a full MILE away and still get a amazing photo.

Cheap ass stalkers need not apply...
