    Default Zeiss 1700mm f4 T*

    Anyone want a custom made 1700mm f4? Only 256kg... get real close to that bee eater you've always wanted to snap. Might need your lorry to double as a tripod though. On display at Photokina 2006.

    More details here.

    It will cost at least a million Singapore dollars or even more...
    Maybe it's made for space photography as well.

    Well, there is arabic script and a somewhat official looking crest on its right side. I'm guessing a oil producing nation with a decent gdp would be able to afford one of these... A million plus would be my guess...

    The Nikkor 1200-1700mm f/5.6-8 might be a more "affordable alternative"

    thank you... but I can't help but wondering on the actual number of such lenses actually in use.
