Realmente macho!

Canon EOS 350D with Jupiter-6 2.8/180mm

Jupiter-6 is probably one of the thickest lenses which can be mounted on
an EOS 350D. There is only a 3 mm (1/8") wide gap between the camera
and the lens body - enough anyway. This is a bodybuilder's lens weighing
about 1.5 kg (more than 3 lbs) and certainly looks very imposing or even
intimidating -- "Realmente macho!", as someone remarked.
