Norman Camera youtube video

I know it's old news, but the video and score cracked me up. And it does come in it's own wheeled container (large enough to use as an emergency raft or coffin).

I'm going to use my OM-D with it. Should be awesome! Wonder how the IBIS will fare with the 2x TC on. (I just checked, and was surprised to see that the IBIS has a setting up to 1000mm, so ostensibly, it would work.) Nothing like a 2000mm equivalent field of view!

Now put the 200-500 with TC on the Q! :-) Would love to see what you can get! Come on, it's only $26K.

As the owner of such sophisticated lens testing equipment as the Q, I expect people to lend and send me expensive lenses for thorough testing.

I thought the Q came as the rear lens cap!

I think you should have to get a mini2 first, Jordan. That's the camera for which this lens was made.

He can be had at a very reasonable hourly rate.

Jordan, you cover the shipping?


I actually did Imatest the damn thing. That was an adventure. http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2012/10/a-little-more-sigma-200-500-fun

There's a little video clip of the 2nd element zooming back and forth. I'm kind of glad it's gone, though. I was starting to wonder if it was going to say "I have the utmost confidence in our mission, Roger".

Tsts... for long focal lengths it's more appropriate to use close-up diopters

B&H has a used Sigzilla for the bargain price of $20k if anyone's interested. It looked pristine... and massive. You could give it as a Christmas present by disguising it as the tree.

You should try mounting and hand holding it on your OM-D so you'll have the telephoto range covered along with your other wider adapted zoom lens
