HAHAHAHAHAHA read the review that this one guy wrote:

This lens has brought new meaning to photography, it's probably one of the best lenses ever developed, if you could put together the money, you should do it, best investment I've ever saved for. The only con I think I've ever had was carrying it around, and being pulled over by the police on my way to the airport because they thought I had a rocket launcher in my car.

You should read the reviews of it on Amazon.com. It's like open mic night at the Improv.


If the Mayans taught us anything, its if you don't finish something its not the end of the world.

They should have really thought of a better color than green.

I love that lens and the finish too!

I'd love to have a Camo coloured 1D4 to go with one of those! :lol:

I agree.
I can't use this in a weddings, because the awful green would take too much attention.

I just bring two guys dressed as umpaloompas to lug it around the ceremony for me. Doesn't attract attention as bad as I thought.

I would hate to try to photograph the President of the United States using this lens. I would need a bullet proof vest...
