Things that come to mind
- my aching back
- hand-held panning only if your the "Governator"
- When in a photo pit must announce moves in advance, "Coming to port, sound of wind whirling while others around you duck
- Travel now requires 2 airline seats, one for you and one for you little friend

Will be interesting to see how much that sucker is going to cost, and what it will be nicknamed.

Hey guys, so far the best unofficial name for the bahemoth of a lens has been Sigzilla or Godzigma..... dam, it even makes a some of the big Canon glass look tiny.
