Oh no they didn't.
"At 36lbs, 33" long and 9" wide at the front element, calling this lens a 'tele' is like calling King Kong a monkey."
At $99,000 a pop, I doubt that B&H is going to sell many. And since there are only a few dozen of these lenses in existence, that point is moot.
What I see here isn't a monster lens, but a brilliant bit of self promotion by B&H.
Well played, sirs. Well played indeed.
