Zeiss shows off 1700mm f/4 mega-lens for Hasselblad  
Tuesday, September 12, 2006 | by Eamon Hickey

Carl Zeiss has posted a web page with a description and pictures of a one-off STL Sonnar T* 1700mm f/4 supertelephoto lens  that it made-to-order for a customer to use with his Hasselblad 203 FE medium format SLR. (This would be roughly equivalent to a 920mm f/4 on 35mm format.)

Zeiss says the optic is the world's largest telephoto lens, a claim that is hard to doubt after you learn that it weighs 256 kg (564 lbs.). It uses a servo-controlled aiming and focusing system.

The lens will be on display at Photokina.
