what would a lense like this be used for
Extreme tele lenses are used for some events (like sport events or concerts) and more often for wildlife (because you can't get very close to birds, bears,..). You an also use it for some "astrophotography" like taking photos of the moon or other large celestial bodies, if they are bright enough.

Not worried about getting close to birds so much, it's more about for bears, lions, tigers and other stuff that may eat me, where this lens would come into play.

I think it's quite a beast to use itself, some very heavy stable support system is required, think hand holding maybe out.

you can hold it in your hand from the case to the concrete wall to put it on
