this ultra and gigantic telephoto that can give to the reach of 1600mm equivalent on the full frame is now available at amazon.com

for about 8000 USD, i guess it is too expensive for most armature photographers . most of the reviews say it give sharp and excellent IQ.

guess i better save up for the Kowa 500mm f/5.6 FL Telephoto Lens, which have an adapter for the m4/3.

13 lbs! I think this one will have to wait until I do all my birding from a golf cart where the lens is bolted on. I am not going to carry that much weight!

Still, applause to Sigma for making it available.

sure it is targeted for pors.

Ian whites got the same one but for his Nikon.

hope Sigma makes some long Telephotos for the m4/3.
