    Thumbs up Exactly how long a camera lens do you need?

    I was looking at lenses (Mrs @ work) and came across this ripper.

    'Bout 1/2 way down there's a calc. that help's you decide on what lens you need.

    Apparently i need a 770mm one.

    Only 770mm? I'm after about a 2400mm

    Maybe a couple of extenders...or ten.
