THIS is a lens...

I've been randomly searching around for 400mm telephoto primes and/or a decent medium cost macro when I stumbled on the Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 EX DG APO IF.

All I have to say is... wow. The thing weighs 35 lbs and gives you 500mm @ f/2.8 (or, if you use the included 2x teleconvertor, 400-1000mm @ f/5.6).

Too bad it costs $25K, or the equivalent of a pretty nice car.

I bet it makes some pretty nice images though!
