Re: Because you cannot defy physics + shallow mount
In reply to bigley Ling, 6 months ago

In theory you could reduce the length of the lens by changing the telephoto group, however the question is how badly would the compromise the lens as an optical system for photography.

This is the point where the physics can not be defied, especially at consumer prices.
