First photo of Sigma's new 5000-200,000mm f/2.8 lens. Nick named the "Sigasaurus"!

Rumor has it this lens will cost $500,000.

:p

What? No tripod ring included? Aww, come on... :lol:


Is that headed to Sigma's headquarters or something as a building display?

I want to see some shots hand held before I jump on this one. After all you can't always be bothered with a tripod.

Looks like we'll have to wait a while. I don't see an EOS mount on it.

My guess? Another company called "Sigma" with an industrial use "object".

Wow, seems a little early for them to come out with a 200-500 f/2.8 II
