one thing is certain. at 256 kg, shake reduction is redundant.

Pentax did make a medium format 6x7 800mm F4 ! You can use this on 35 mm with an adapter ... If you can carry it hahaha

Also there was some Large Fomat 5x7 Graflex lens , 60-INCH F8 Dallmeyer , used by the Associatec press .. once upon a time !

Says the customer wanted it to shoot wildlife. I guess he can get in his high rise and aim it at Africa and have a safari from his balcony or he is compensating for the lack of size in another department. Probably just has it so he can say he has it. Whoever says money can't buy happiness ought to be slapped
Wildlife in Africa shot from Dubai!. Almost 600Lbs that would take at least 4 guys to move unless on a stationary set up all the time. Could see if there really is life on Mars though. Ridiculous!

Looking at the linked pictures from the site the thing looks to have a LCD screen on it. Who needs Live View in the camera when your lens already provides it?

This would make a great walk-around lens.

As in "honey, I'm going to take a walk around my new lens, I'll be back in time for supper!"

Not sure if it autofocuses? It would be still very dark to use at f4 with that kind of focal length. Not sure what kind of photos it is capable of ...
Autofocus on that thing would require a V8.

I can see the name of the lense in the arabic on one side. I bet it is for some sheik....
Sure it is. So you can start saving to bid when it comes up on e-bay after they run out of oil...

You see, there is no price tag on the lens...probably because it was to small to fit.
