  4. Wow. An effective aperture of over 21cm diameter. That is a front lens as
    large as a dinner plate!

  7. I email esteemed seller as thus,

    Sir,

    Kind blessings and salutations. I am most keen on lens, would you ship to
    Nigeria? It is required for sunday school roof in Wobbattu district so you
    can rejoice that item will bring much richness of blessing to all here.

    I have large bankers draft for you to take what sum you need for lens and
    shipping. I trust you that you will be fair and send me balance after lens
    has been paid for.

    Christian greetings and much blessings upon you.

    I wonder what the effective focal length would be on a video camera?

    Well, with some mirror lenses (14" across) you can get 2400mm at f6.3,
    or 1950mm at f5 with a flat field. 1200mm refractive element at f5.6
    is pretty fast. I once got a quote done for an 800mm f4 lens of
    $75,000. No AF.

    Instead of a 2x converter I might settle for free hernia insurance
    thrown in!

    I'd rather have a .5X focal reducer
