Well i wouldn't call it massive, its a half stop slower then 800mm F5.6 lenses... and its way over priced, ideally it should be $5000-6000... especially considering the Sigma 800mm F5.6 is less then $10k and its an AF lens.

True, and if one was to use it on a medium format camera then it would be a great find, however as the format gets larger the lenses don't need to resolve as much and this lens may not be able to match its 35mm counterparts in resolving ability.

Nevertheless, it seems as though this a great-deal overpriced, but if you just NEED it, and you're willing to fly to Japan to claim it (mapcamera wont ship items above a certain amount). Well...
