I was amazed at the size of this lens as the military staff photographer captured the Thunderbirds. She was getting more attention from the men than the airplanes!

    Awesome shot. Looks like a Nikon D6 film camera with a 400mm f2.8 lens with vibration reduction enabling her to hand hold it. The dream combination camera price is about $5 grand. Lens is about $10 grand
