The Sony QX1 Gives New Meaning to Tiny Camera, Giant Lens

Sony QX1 Sony 500mm f4 G lens

If you thought mounting a full frame lens onto a mirrorless camera just imagine what attaching a massive telephoto lens in front of your smartphone would look like. Well actually we don’t have to imagine any more because Sony Alpha Rumors posted a mock up created by Facebook user Usperedi that shows a Sony 500mm f4 G lens plus the requisite adapter Alpha to E-mount adapter attached to a QX1. The whole thing looks ridiculous especially since it’s all clipped onto a thin and tiny Sony Xperia smartphone.

Of course it’s possible for someone to mount the whole thing together. After all Sony is showing off the QX1 equipped with a Sony FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G OSS lens (which you can check out after the break) at the IFA tech show happening in Germany right now.

There are plenty of other more insanely large lenses out there in the world. We’d really like to see the someone attach Sigma’s way larger 800mm f/5.6 EX DG APO HSM or 300-800mm F5.6 EX DG APO HSM lenses to the QX1.
