I don't think I'm insecure enough to find that amazing.

However, I am insecure enough to find this guy from the 1940's amazing.

The Sigma Corporation is please to announce the new APO 200-500mm F2.8/400-1000mm F5.6 EX DG Lens.

they're putting all that money into the lens and not the translation!

Just be glad it doesn't have "Leica" stamped on it. Then it would probably be about 222K.

ya that lens it nuts...i like how it comes w/ a 2x teleconverter in case 500mm isn't enough for you.

for me, personally [based off what i shoot], anything past 200mm is bologna...but that's just my take.

for 22k, buy a car...

or a hasselblad lol ;-)

if anyone wants to drive to laramie wyoming, there is a one of a kind 1200mm f/4 that used to be used by nasa for filming rocket testing from a long distance, they guy will sell it for a thousand :) oh and it comes with its own tripod and dolly, and i accidentally mistook the lens hood for a garbage can
its the most beautiful piece of glass ive ever seen!

If you read the entire release it has lots of errors in the translation, I really like that.

For that kind of money you could get a body that does some really good ISO 3200 or higher and a manageable lens. Couldn't you?

true but im pretty sure it wouldnt cost that much if it wasnt extremely sharp and have a great mtf chart. its a purpose built lens, shooting at 400 iso with that and shooting at 3200 with one of the fixed aperture 500's isnt even going to compare...but neither does the price so its not really a comparison...
*shrug* i just thought it was cool that sigma finally has a new sigmonster and bigma, the names need to be rethought :P

I find it interesting that it takes words to express that there are no words. :)
