Land of the giants: The world’s largest lenses
Camera lenses come in many different sizes. We take a look at the unfathomably massive – the world’s largest consumer lenses.
Weighing in at a hefty 34.6lbs and 726mm in length, this is not the easiest lens to carry around with you on holiday. As well as being meaty, the Sigma 200-500 also wins some world firsts; it is the first large-aperture ultra telephoto lens to have an f/2.8 aperture at 500mm, and is the largest high-speed zoom lens available.
If you’re impressed by this and are looking for a lens that is excellent at tracking fast moving objects and you don’t mind parting with $32,000, this could be the lens for you!
Focal Length: 200-500mm
