Improvise !

$80K lens. $25K camera. $8k tripod head. Lens shade ? what would you need with that ???? Good thing the truck crew during setup lashed 2 old 416's onto the lens with #8 Sash ( grip favorite ! ). That let me slip my hat under the mics for some lens shading until sun was actually into the shots. Unbelievable that a lens for this price has no shade available... hell not even velcro to mount a quickie shade with foam core !


B&H has this lens listed for $92K and ships in 2-4 weeks... ie built to order !
