    That means its market price would be around 1200 to 1300 only

    Does that mean the lens can be split into 2?
    I say the lens is the soul of a camera. What about the body? Well, it's just the body...

    For this lens, like some fisheye lenses, there are built-in filters that rotate internally.
    The filters are an integral part of the optical system and can't be removed. The filter arrangement is because of the risk of severe vignetting if front mounted screw-in filters are used. On some super teles, drop-in filters are employed as the large front element of such lenses make using screw-in filters expensive and difficult to maintain, plus issues of optical flatness for such a large filter.

    There are some lenses where the lens barrel can be separated to remove the internal filter like the Sigma 16mm fisheye for example.
