There was one review of this lens which said that it can take down a moose from about a mile away. :ugh:


But I wonder how many of these are around. Cannot be thousands. Less than 100??

I'd love to unsheathe this beast at the fall hawk migration and send those Nikon and Canon shooters scurrying with their pissant little 500mm toys.
