Oh how the sport photographer is misunderstood...

->> It's a bargain compared to the Canon 1200 f/5.6. The last time I saw one for sale it was over $100,000.00. (Of course I believe Canon charged $75,000.00 to make it when they made the few that they did!)

->> $18K....about half what a large dental practice pays in liability insurance a year...with no claims against them.

I would not need an 800mm unit, but I am sure someone does. I have already had one hernia in my life, do not need another.

"My new digital Rebel has like 20-something megapixels. I can just use my 18-300mm, crop the center of the frame and scale it up in Photoshop. Practically the same as that 800mm doorstop."
