I know someone who has one of these monsters, IIRC the thing weighs 36 pounds. It's big, ugly, and heavy but produces some impressive shots.

Im still on the fence about getting this lens, how does the IQ compare to the 1200mm (external link)?

I mean, if I take this lens, throw in a 2x Tele-converter, will I get comparable IQ? does $92,000 really make a difference in IQ???


:D

I bought this thing for shooting wildlife and it does so magnificently. The other reviews have highlighted the Sigma Cannon's artillery prowess which is fine but it's also a suburb high energy weapon. Sure, the raw power of the recoil hitting your solar plexus is something awesome but this does little for you if shooting wildlife means total destruction.

By sliding the switch to atomic frequency (AF) mode the Sigma spits out a tingly blanket of high energy gamma rays. This mode is not as instantly gratifying as cannon mode, but if you have the patience to wait about 10 seconds you will notice less fur on every animal in a 5 mile cone. After thirty seconds you'll have bagged enough animals to make wildlife stew for Sub-Saharan Africa and beyond.

I finally bagged my first bald eagle the other day with the Sigma Cannon in AF mode. Having been annoyed that these birds weren't really bald like me, my Sigma did the trick and that particular eagle was bald for a few brief seconds before turning into a feathery mound of goo.

Finance this.

So true....

BUYER BEWARE: Not a cat accessory., February 16, 2010

The seller should state that this product is NOT designed to be strapped to a cat. Now I have to look elsewhere for a smaller cat friendly device and a replacement cat. Not to mention all of the hours I have to put into training the new cat for espionage.

Actually this is one of the best deals I've seen for a 5D Mark II.
Buy the lens for $28,999.00 or buy the lens with a 5D Mark II for $28,598.10.

Think that's for real? Be worth the kill on your credit if you could sell the lens off quick enough! Not only do you get the 5DMkII free, you get $400 off the lens!

These reviews are great! Now I want to go make a Bald Eagle bald!

and WTF is this!?! http://www.amazon.com …67F1CE/ref=cm_c​r_asin_lnk (external link)
