"60 inch focal length.."

Love it "Ships to: World Wide" and "Shipping preparation and charges are responsibility of the purchaser" and "Weight is 1500-2000 lbs" (I am assuming a large range because they cannot pick it up to weight the thing). I think the 100K buy price is the small piece of the power conversion and shipping :-0).

I cannot image how many stamps that would be from WA to, say, Perth (happy coincidence on the WA part ok).

I wonder if it's a "sharp" copy of the lens :-)

I'll let you know how sharp it is if they accept my offer :P

Heck...comes with a little spotting scope too!

Hey, if a Canon 12000mm costs $75,000, and this is a 60" and costs $100,000, the cost is in the same ballpark :-)

12000mm ~= 47 inches, $75,000/47 in = $1,595 per inch.
$100,000/60 in = $1,666 per inch.

Makes me appreciate the 50mm f/1.8

Yeah, and this is a better deal because it comes with it's own mount...you still have to dish out more $$$ in order to get a nice tripod and gimble mount for the Canon 1200mm

Don't forget that you'd have real trouble getting it in your camera bag.

Yeah, but I bet you it's a very stable lens and would be great for mounting on a boat and taking all those beautiful coastal shots of the Carribbean and Costa Rica!

You wouldn't need the boat, you'd just need to be in Africa.

HAHAHAHAHA! If only the curvature of the earth were not a factor, then YES!

I could totally see creating a way to mount my camera to this.

Too funny. That person's previous auctions are kids lunchboxes, pyjamas and games.
