Expensive yes, but not as much as some that have been offered for sale recently.

Like Yoda speaks, your title is.

Yes - but that doesn't mean it will be steady!

I think you are joking but I actually tried to hand hold one of them once. I'm glad for the Sigma 500mm F/4.5 which is about half the weight. I think I read somewhere that it weighs around 13 to 15 pounds. Still I wouldn't mind having it but I would have to buy a bigger safe.

It's in better cosmetic shape than mine, that's for sure.
