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.

perfect weapon for the voyeurs :bsmilie: high ISO and fast aperture for low lightshoots. Paparazzis will have 1 also :bsmilie:

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...
