Well they sure as hell aren't gonna let me on the plane with THAT!

Sigma 200-500 f/2.8 EX DG

Wow, I don't need to go to AX this year, I can just get this lens and photograph people in LA from Sunnyvale!

Not only does it need it's own li-ion battery to power the auto focus motor, there's a tele-converter that makes it into a 400-1000mm lens! LOL

Oh yah, this thing weighs like 38 lbs (15.7kg) and a touch over 2ft long.

MAN, try explaining this thing to airport security. Oh wait, don't need to fly anywhere, you can just take photos from the comfort of your own home... But I have to admit, it's oh so sexy at f2.8.


And yay! The Sigma DP1 looks like it's finally gonna ship, after they had to delay it for a year over image quality issues. Now that's a cool, compact camera, with the APS-C DSLR sensor crammed in.

It's a 16.4mm fixed lens (28mm equiv.) and I'm sure it's gonna be pricy when it comes out. But technically, it's so cool...

PS: Man, that Sigma lens looks like you can use it to take down Godzilla! I mean, why that color GREEN!?!?!?
