    Whoever said 20,000 euro I think that is a bit low. I'd guess more around 100-120 thouasnd euro! The canon 1200mm f/5.6 was around $120,000! Would be fun though.

    The tiny little black box you see on the smaller end of the lens is the Hasselblad body. Oh my, this thing is even bigger than my mother in law!

    Oh my God!
    That thing is a big as a motorcycle!
    256 kilos? Wow!
    You definately need a pack elephant!
    Cool design btw, it looks like a spaceship shuttle.
    You are right, 20,000 euros is way too little for this monster.

    Well done Zeiss. I am sure its a Guiness record of a lens.

    Assistant required

    This optic needs not only an assistant included in your budget, as you say Claire, but also enough for s truss for him or her, to cover the ensuing claim for industrial injury for the double hernia sustained lugging it about.
    Seriously, I was thinking what is the market for a lens like this ?, how many do they will sell to jusify the research,development and manufacturing costs ? what would a lens of this type be used for ?

    its likely as much a marketing tool as it is something created to be sold.
    one of those items created with the intention of likely not ever selling but meant to drum up sales of other lenses etc.

    very cool design. imagine itd be a neat astronomical lens maybe.

    I would tend to agree with you Scooterman, its their entry in the record books for making the biggest M/F lens.

    Somebody in another forum rightly pointed out Arabic script at the side. You can bet this is going to some Saudi Prince and is worth 50x more than that
    If it says Zeiss or Rollei, the answer is YES!
