    I just got this email from B&H. Looks like a pretty serious lens!

    If anyone plans to buy, you'd be helping me out a lot with site expenses if you use this link just prior to placing the pre-order or order: Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens SEL400F28GM B&H Photo Video

    I'll get right on that. I'll have lots of time to make use of the lens after my wife divorces me, lol.

    12 grand isn't bad. It's on par with the latest Nikon and Canon 400mm lenses.

    And it beats them by a lot on weight. Could be a nice point in favor of the Sony system for people who need to use such a lens on a regular basis!

    I have trouble holding still with my 300mm Nikkor lens. I can't imagine the problems I'd have with that 400 even though it has OSS.

    I have a Nikon 200-500/5.6 for my D800. And, I use that combo 3 or 4 times a summer. A $12k Sony won't be visiting my house.

    Amin, you should buy one.....you'd still get the affiliate link dough. You'll just need to plunk your little girl down a block away to get the same photos ;)

    Ha! A few of my favorite family pics were taken from a great distance.

    This one of my son walking with and looking up at my dad was effectively from 320mm (200mm x 1.6 crop):

    That said, if I were to buy this lens, there would be some problems in the Sabet household :D .
