Hey...B&H got another of these in. Only $120K...used. 36.5 pounds.

If you got it, what would you do with it?

The heat mirage on a hot day would probably give you an image that is not very clear, the same as looking through a spotting scope on a hot day and seeing the heat mirage. Probably best used on cooler days or overcast days.

If nothing else reading the description of the lens in the 'Features' section on the B&H site is worth the visit.
