Wow, very cool. I wonder how fast it focuses. It has it's own lcd display to show shooting distance and focal length.

I guess I need a new tripod and a few hours weight lifting in the gym...

Imagine yourself with that monster at the airport security check. Most probably it will be mistaken for a bazooka.

Here's a monster.

About 3 feet long and 30 lbs. And I saw one for sale about a week ago on Fredmiranda.com for only $40k used.
