My 2008 Honda Fit sport cost me about 16k. 18K for a lens, yikes. I used to have a sigma 300-800 in canon mount. I found it way to hard to get anything in the viewfinder at full zoom. Stationary objects ok but moving targets no thanks. Always zoomed back to 300 then once in viewfinder cranked zoom to 800.

Guess there are allot of rich people out there. Most of them are work alcoholics so I guess only pros that need this range will be getting one. I guess this is a staus symbol lens for Nikon. Cant imagine many of theses being sold.
