The size of lenses

I saw this video on a photography forum a few days ago.


You attach the camera body to the lens not the lens to the camera body.

Try this out for size: http://www.the-digital-picture.com/R...ns-Review.aspx

Only 12 of them in the world, of which 2 Sports Illustrated own.

Even at only 85mm FL: the 85 f/1.2 is called "the keg" for a good reason.

I often use a 400/2.8 that I borrow when doing a model shoot on a beach. The tele compression rocks.

My favourite though is my 200 f2 which is pretty much perfection, and easily handholdable. Thats why I haven't bought the 400, but did buy the 200. Expensive buggers they are.
