The Canon lens lack a handle :) Makes it difficult to bring along.
maybe it's too heavy for my VRdrive2 too.

I guess i know someone who might state that it´s an easy thing for the drive to handle it veeery woonderfully . . ;):cool:

Maybe - but i´m sure it would look a bit funny . . :D :cool:
But on the other hand i´m also sure this device would impress (potential) clients enormously :lol:

I have asked my shootpatterngenerator ... it tells me 10692 shots for a (theoretically) 650 mm lens at full frame, 30% overlap ... doubling the focus quadrupels the shots ... for a 5200 mm must have 64 times ... that gives 684288 shots ... hmm, well, i need a bigger accumulator. And bigger cf card.

greetings from germany
Chris

ps.: please, dont tell me who can pay for the 5200mm can pay for an accumulator too.

ps2 @kolor: how much ram will i need to stitch a 684288 shot spherical pano? (no, just kidding)

you would need:

assuming a Canon 5D Mark III:
(22.3mp * 4 * 684288 )/1024/1024 =

58,21 Terabyte Scratch Disc so with an optimum ration of 1:2 you would need 29,1 Terabyte RAM and with a ratio of 1:4 finally 14,55 Terabyte RAM

I see ... it is good luck for me to own the older 5D M2 ... so my requirements are less ...

1300mm @f12.7 then you need a sturdy tripod and bright light.
my OM-D has stabilizing in the body, but I don't think Oly thought anybody would need stabilizing a lens like this :)

A lens that I did not have to worry about my little tripod either.. So I found out that the The Hubble Space Telescope was going cheap and with the aid of a few Russian cosmonauts, I managed to strap my D800 to the front of it.. and began to zoooom in and zoooooooom in and zoooooooooom in and zooooooooooom in and zooooooooooooooooooooom in and ... :rolleyes: not sure who the hell is looking up at me since its a bit blurrred.. :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:
