    Too Rich for my blood, Maybe even Don's

    This came in an email today. Love the feedback the has been submitted.
    Wonder if it even comes in a Sony mount?


    I think we could "pool" our money and buy one to share amongst ourselves.

    Thumbs down No SONY Mount

    Sadly, that lens only comes in the SIGMA, Canon and Nikon mount, so, yeah... not interested. It weighs around 35lbs. Similar to two regulation bowling balls. My back is not interested in that at all!

    A fun looking lens, to be sure. Most folks I have discussed this particular lens with were more interested in it at about $10-12,000... certainly not $26,000.

    More optic power to ya!

    BTW: Do not be fooled by the list of goodies I have. This is simply for insurance purposes, should I get picked. My reservoir of capital is so dry, I have to continually blow the dust out of my a850. Geez, what an infusion of cash could do to improve my remote flash photography.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
