In the market for a REALLY long telephoto?

You're in luck! There's a 350lb Soviet satellite lens available. A bargain at $18,500!

To take this along you need a trailer, not a bag.

Well. maybe a satellite or large plane would do as well.

How can I use a filter on this one?

So, doing some rough caculations. . . . Its physical length is 1330mm, so let's say its focal length is a little shorter, say 1300mm. And its physical width is 470mm, so let's say its maximum aperture is about 400mm. Then we have a speed of about f/3. Not bad, really.

Ahh, but I need a new car, and I think the bank *will* lend me the money for a car.
