    Longest lens does not say much. I had 210mm (sold now) that and the 2x TC made it 420mm but using it on my Oly made it 820mm. So the form factor is also important.

    Just my 5c.

    500mm if u do not carry it everytime u go shooting because of the weight and hassle then its a wasted purchase.
    400mm i can carry it everytime i go shooting and fully utilise it so its not wasted purchase

    What is the point of this thread?

    Honestly, since when photography has become a matter of owning long lenses? (and big egos?)

    eh at least i'm honest k? :P but seriously I wish I could afford a 400mm f/2.8L right now. That would solve alot of problems during restrictive race events like F1, where I can't go down to the side of the tracks. Only temporarily using a 70-200 2.8L now..heh

    hahaha, i m also honest wat
    It seems like the both of us have the same interest. i mean interested in the same type of lens

    i m also using the 70-200 f2.8 but with a 1.7x teleconverter (thats y i got 12 inches ) and i too hope to be able to afford the 400f2.8 or 500f/4 or 600f/4 or 200-400 f/4 or sigma 120-300f2.8 or 300-800 f5.6. My problem is birds are always so far away and theres a limit as to the closeness my leg can bring me to the birds... and the problem is worsened by me being only 12 inches. If only i am 20inches, that would be more pleasurable indeed...

    Hello,

    The purpose of why I started this straw poll is to find out the distribution of the longest lens CSers own and is not intended to be an ego boosting thread. When did anyone ever mention or hint in this thread that photography equates to owning long lenses? How on earth did you come to that conclusion? What subject you shoot dictates the type and focal length of the lens you use. Obviously, a sports or wildlife shooter is much more likely to own a long lens than a landscape shooter. So please don't just jump to conclusions.

    So you haven't told me what's the POINT in you asking about the distribution of the longest lens CSers own yet.... which mades whatever you have said completely irrelevant to what I have asked for.
