Good to see there's reasoning behind these crazy focal lengths. This is gonna be an expensive shot (all this pope business is a bit over the top IMHO).

Shooting the pope will not solve anything.

Sigzilla 200-500 2.8 + 2x TCIII + 1.4x TCIII + 1D4 = 728mm-1820mm

Either way, I want to know what the Swiss Guard think of something this big anywhere near the Vatican.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio (of Argentina) is the new pope ... it'd be interesting to see what the lens captured

unfortunate choice of words in the title  ;D

please don't shoot the pope.

I figured it was a euphemism.

Amazing to think the arms race that brought us the Canon EF 1200 5.6L and the Nikon 1200-1700 5.6-8 was driven by high school baseball! Specifically at the Koshien Stadium.

http://www.nikon.com/about/feelnikon/recollections/r16_e/index.htm
Interesting article ... thanks for sharing. It's funny how Nikon does not use the name "Canon" (as their competitor) in that article ... it merely says "rival company":
"In 1980s, a rival company was making a 1200mm f/5.6 super telephoto lens. The newspapers were beginning to switch over to cameras made by this company in order to use the lens in their coverage of baseball at Koshien Stadium."  :)
