Hello, we were looking for a higher focal length lens of around 2000 mm to 2500 mm for shoot in both canon mount and pl mount. Can anyone help me by sharing the information for the same, like from where we can hire these kind of lens or is there any company which custom made theses lens.

Thank you for your time and consideration

Regards
Partha Borgohain

There's a 2000mm Nikkor mirror lens on a huge yoke mounting. I don't know if you could hire one. The range where I worked had one and I used it once in 4 years- it's a real handful and not very practical, but the MoD found a few uses for it. I can't imagine it cost less than £20,000.

you could try something like this with a teleconverter:

Panavision has some nice zooms that could do the job as well (probably better).

I think Clairmont has something really long. Maybe only a thousand but it might take a doubler.

This is the range where you might think about adapting an astronomical telescope.

There are a few converted canon EF 1200mm 1:5.6 kicking around, I presume they take a teleconverter.
