Pffftt..!

It's only f/5.6 - not a "serious" lens at all.

Consumer-grade crap..!

Offering for sale @ $100,000 and actually sell for that price are not one in the same!
The nonsense has made a lot of headlines though.

£99,000 is $157,000.

They have changed hands for over $100,000.
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

Amazing Portrait lens. My clients have never looked skinnier.  Corners were a little soft.

LOL!!!!!  Sooooooo big.

For birders, and creepy stalkers, this is The Ultimate Lens! However, I don't see it in my possession anytime on this side of the grave. Gear like this would also create problems in finding suitable tripods and heads, and you would also need to hire a substantial amount of sherpas to haul it around to the birding locations.
