    Okay...

    ..i think it's time to reconsider going with a Nikon DSLR...:p..
    But, oh my, i think that guy can use the lens to take action pics from the parking lot of a stadium....:rolleyes: :p
    I wonder how did he hold that sucker up when he took those pics??..:confused::p
    Imagine going on an airplane, i bet that lens alone counts for 1 whole luggage.:eek:
    Check in counter: "Excuse me, sir, may i ask what is inside that crate box?".
    1200-1700mm lens owner: "Eerm, it's my photography lens. But please, be very extra careful handling it"..:p

    Here's the pic below. And i found out, it weighs about 35 lbs.!..oh my arms!!:eek: :(:p

    Here's a lens that, um, might not be very useful for badminton.
    Since it's been used a few times, it's going for a discount ;)

    If interested, see here.

    By the way, handheld photography might be difficult with this lens :p

    That..

    ..one photographer, 3rd from bottom, i don't know what in the world is he trying to do lying out so flat on the ground??:confused:..Is he trying to take a picture of an athlete's feet or trying to shoot from the bottom up??..or maybe he's tired of holding up the lens, thus he's putting it down on the ground??..:confused:

    yup, sure looks like penelope.

    some of those lenses look like bazookas!

    love the mini umbrella though.
