the "real" size of a F* 600mm/4

i knew it's large and heavy
nerver saw one in real life before

but i didn't thought this lens would be that big
the F*300/4 looks almoste like a babylense next to that monster

so think about it twice, before you order

You sound disappointed. What did you expect? It is a 600f/4 !

On the bright side, you can go to the gym a lot less if you handhold that when you shoot :-)

yeah,
maybe for Sly or Mr. Governor of California but "skiny European guy"
congrats on the lens. I just hope you have the tripod capable of handling this beauty (or the beast?)

There are times when I curse one of my lenses, due to it's weight, which tops the scales at an almost puny 5 pounds.
That is until I use it, and capture some of the most amazing photographs.
I suspect that your new 600mm is the same, in that sense.
