Kowa shows 350mm f4 manual lens prototype at Photokina

While going through the various booth reports for the latest Photokina round-up, we discovered a few more news nuggets! Kowa, a company known for spotting scopes and other optics-related products in various industries, is showing a prototype 350mm f4 manual focus lens mounted on a DSLR. You can also attach a teleconverter to it and get 500mm f5.6 or 850mm f9.6.

This is a prototype, with no details as to if/when there might be an actual release. However, Digitalcamera.jp speculates a price of 3000 euro. To locate three pictures of this, visit the digitalcamera.jp page (computer-translated) and use your browser's search function to search for the word "kowa". If you are reading this at a much later date, you have to look for it in their September 2010 archives.
