One of the Amazon reviewers understates - "Alas, it's large."

I'm not keen on the green colour, and wonder if dcshooter could re-do it with a silver-and-red anodized treatment. Oh, and a swatch of gaffers tape for the brand marking.

Due to gravitational forces and curvature of the earth, it suffers from CA when not perpendicular to Earth's magnetic field.

Do you have to compensate with the shutter speed for time slowing down as the light nears the even horizon of the outer element?

I believe the built-in, pitch controlled rotational gyro-sphincter will take care of all that, within limits of the sway bar, of course.

Nice April Fools joke. No one would ever make a lens that large.

You know if they had announced it on April first when it originally came out I don't think anyone would have believed something this ridiculous could actually exist.
