Pffftt..!

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

Consumer-grade crap..!

£99,000 is $157,000.

They have changed hands for over $100,000.

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.
No one's perfect, and it takes a great man to admit he's wrong. Me - I'm wrong on a daily basis.
