Just went to a taping of the Antiques Roadshow in Wash D.C. and was impressed by all the fancy equipment. Saw a Fuji video lens and thought hmmm that looks expensive. Googled it after returning. 13-1150mm, 87x optical zoom, 49 lbs. Yikes, you could buy four or five houses near Detroit for that.

That's INSANE. And it's a video lens.

Perhaps videographers and cinematographers have a bit more liquidity than we still photographers...

I'm thinking that the videographers don't actually own their equipment. The production company does.

David Haas , Aug 22, 2010; 10:33 p.m.

WOW! And to think you can get it with 6 month no interest / no payment financing...

It can zoom from 13mm to 1150mm in about half a second. Also has a 2x tele built-in. This was it

Give Leica a month or two: maybe a f.09 version would sell well with the M9 body....

and priority mail 4-7 day shipping for it, from B&H to US addresses, is only...

Oops, I clicked "order" and the order is "non-cancelable"...
Thank goodness for the credit card reform bill!

A lot of pro video equipment is rented.

Man, spending $3,128,944.50 at B&H is pretty easy, three clicks.

Oh, and add - $40,605.00 - for priority mail
