    (And so does my camera.)

    DIY 400 mm f/ 11 lens made from a single achromat and telescoping sections of ABS DWV pipe.

      Aim that at someone and they will probably call the cops :)

      Anyway, just wanted to say cool lens. I really enjoy reading about all your homemade lenses. Thanks for sharing.

      Ya, it does look like something a secret agent / sniper would have. But this lens is all show.

      To qoute Donkey in Shrek 1: You think it compensates? ;)

      That is seeeeeriously a big mf-lens!

      compensates for what? ;-)

      yes, it's big but quite light. it weighs less than my Nikkor 135.

      as I said above, this lens is mostly for show, but I did yet this shot out of it:

      Great stuff. Reminds me of this old german Novoflex lens I have - single achromat with an iris at the end of a long barrel. Takes amazing pictures. Only problem - with the pistol grip and shoulder stock it looks just like RPG. Freaks people out.

      Is it possible to attach a silencer to that, or is that already built in? :)

      I don't know, do you have a silencer that will fit a 62 mm filter thread?
