You know? This thing like a bom more than a lens. It sure get lots of attention wherever you go. I need the price, so I can decide if I can afford it.

Ummmm, the attachment is just a 2X teleconverter. At 16Kgs, I don't think you will be hand-holding shots, unless you're Mr. Olympia.

I'd love the range and speed, but... Weight and Price rule it out for me. Can't imagine I'd EVER want to lug that thing around. But, I bet we see a few on sports sidelines, and no doubt some wildlife photogs will lust after this thing.

Great thing about that lens, if you have to lug it around, later when you have normal lenses on a body with battery grip, etc, that camera will feel like a toy.

I can actually predict people complaining about their camera lens sockets coming loose or breaking off with this whopper attached.

Plus it should really come with a lens carrier... golf cart, shopping trolly, midget?
