Years ago I shot high school football with a Canon 300mm 2.8 IS. You’re spot on about being insane or needing to lift weights to use these things.I'm guessing this is a Canon 400mm F2.8 prime. You see pictures of these types of lenses and they look, you know, big....see them "in the flesh" close up and they're even bigger than what you'd imagined. He obviously is under a certain pressure to get a shot which can be published within the hour. But I'm thinking if I owned that lens as someone who's not professional, I'd have to be insane or start weightlifting.
