    In case you’d like to put one in your gadget bag, remember that the camera weighs 6500 lbs. B-36 bomber carrying pouch sold separately.

    The negative size is 18×36. Inches.

    Someone else can figure the effective focal length for a crop sensor.

    did some digging… that’s actually an f/8 (which puts the dimensions more in line… over 6000mm fl at f/.8 would give you a primary objective along the lines of 25 feet in diameter)…
