    Ah, so that was the white thing I've been seeing in my dreams lately.
    "..... it’s also the first in the world to feature a built-in 1.4x teleconverter." That's interesting.

    At $10 a week its going to take me a while too.
    Have lusted for this lens since it was announced but I guess I hoped it would be half the price. Was never going to happen though.
    The new Sigma 120-300 looks like a cost effective good quality alternative, especially with a 2x converter.

    Not my dream lens. Bettter things on which to spend $12.5k. 300 f2.8 Ef L IS good for me. If I were to go that long 500 f4.

    Wow, at that price I will stay with my Tamron 250-500 lens. It is slow and not the best but it is cheap compared to this

    I would love one of these lenses, but if I bought one, my wife would divorce me.

    Hmmmmmmmm, maybe not such a bad idea.........................

    For argument's sake, say you put it on a 5DmkIII, bringing you within spitting distance of $15k in terms of outlay.

    ... why not go for two bodies and two lenses covering the same or near enough to focal length range without needing a teleconverter while simultaneously pocketing some of the change?
