Then chances are good that you're not anywhere close to their target market.
Mind you, I know one photographer here who brings a $6k lens along with his new 1Dx (Plus other lenses) out to roller derby games. Like myself he is into photography for the fun of it, and doesn't make it his day job.
So, who drops that kind of cash on this sort of lens? Those of us with the means and desire to own and use such a thing.
Personally I would love an 800mm prime. I could see myself owning Canon's version in the next ten years. For now my next goal is a Sigma 120-300mm 2.8.
