  • Sandro

    But why did they do it?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      grandmother, grandmother, grandmother

      • Andrei

        And why else is anything produced and sold, not just photographic goods?

  • Victor

    "Completely: designed, manufactured, painted and assembled in the UK" forgot to add "British virgins on a British moonlit night, and the copy of canon prima, whose optics were borrowed, was used by Elizabeth herself", then perhaps the price tag will look quite justified)))

  • B. R. P.

    I remember such soap dishes) A ​​comparative test with Orion-15 would be interesting)

    • Rodion

      So Elizarov did something like that in his time. These lenses from soap boxes are not particularly and worse than Orion)))

  • Oleg

    Fortunately, kenon for this case has 40mm for a full frame and 24mm for a crop for mere pennies and aperture of 2.8

    • Victor

      Such (or similar) lenses, so any system has))

      A thing for connoisseurs.

  • Sergei

    The British are getting impudent now.
    Recently, an office there began to transplant a triplet from Smena to a Leica for $ 350.
    And now they began to adapt the optics from Canon soap dishes at a higher level, but already for $ 1100.

  • V.Matveev

    Hmm, it turns out, all the way scolded for the price tags on "Elki" grabber from Canon-and not even grabber, but quite a modest one. :) At least a good, usable zoom 70-200 / 2.8L - quite fits into those 1100 bucks that overly enterprising Britons want for their pathetic door peephole. While comparing them is how to compare the Nikon D3s with the “legendary” Polo SharpShots D3000, God forgive me!

    At this rate, you see - and will buy (for a box of "Helios" and "Cyclops") the well-known Tiger Girl for himself an island, with preference and mademoiselles ...
