    1700mm f4 Hasselblad lens

    Carl Zeiss will be showing a 1700mm F4 Hasselblad lens at Photokina. I do not know the price but since the lens weighs more that 560 lbs perhaps your budget should include an assistant.

    Still a bit slow for my available light pub photos.

    I don't think a pub is big enough to fit inside that kind of lens!
    Sounds very cool mostly because it means that there are still nature or sports photographers that V Hasselblads. And to think that the company was phasing out their "old" series in favor of the H.
    That lens probably costs something like 20,000 euros. To drop it would be worse that crashing your new Porsche.

    The Whopper

    Well lets think about this little lens.....

    1700/4 =425mm or about 16.75 inches...

    that would be the diameter of the lens....

    :o :o :o what camera would this be for? One would have to have a hoist or block and tackle set up to get it off the ground!

    True, if it were a non-retrofocus design, but I don't think it holds true for retrofocusers.

    I'm going to add it to my Christmas wish-list. I know I won't get one, but my hubby will certainly have no qualms about getting me the 150mm I really want.
    Of course if the 1700mm shows up under my tree, I'll be sure to sell it on APUG for a bargain price.

    I wonder what the bokeh is like on that one?

    If it were a retrofocus lens, it would be even longer than the already humongous focal length.

    You're thinking about Telephoto design!

    But the entrance aperture still has to be the same size regardless of construction, so yes - it's at least 43cm wide.

    You don't need an assistant with this. You need a pack elephant!

    Hello Ole,
    I am pretty sure you can make this lens fit one of your folders

    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    Hans, it would have to be the other way around. Even with a Hasselblad you would mount the camera to the lens, not the lens to the camera!

    Just like mounting a camera to an astronomy telescope - about the same focal length too? Maybe that's what it is - a 17" reflector telescope!
