In this case you can expect Nikon simply posting one photo of the D800 camera as result.....one brand has this, the other has another thing which is better.......

MacDonalds comes to mind:

Anyone have a link to a 2560x1600 copy of that image? The one hosted on FM is tiny.

Yeah, Nikon has that D800, against all these lenses, the bodies that go with them, and all the cini bodies behind the lenses on the right. Kinda like bringing a lovely knife to a gun fight!

Does the phrase "lens porn" come to mind? And I thought this was a GP rated forum .

90 million lens isn't even comprehensible.

I'm impressed

My guess is Canon realized this milestone on account of Peter's unexpected, last-minute 200-400 order.
I will be glad to receive 90,000,001.

As for the photo, it's a composite. Each lens was photographed separately. Actually, it's quite possibly a CGI image. In any case, the lenses behind others have the same clean highlight, which hasn't been obscured by the lens in front. Also, if you look at the reflection of the front row of lenses, you'll see white spaces between them, whereas that doesn't exist above the reflection. I don't think these kinds of images are done in 'one shot' any longer...

On a tangent, but this might be fairly representative of the current state of product 'photography.' A friend who works with ad photographers has indicated many he works with are routinely hired to shoot the scenes in which product will be placed (such as a car), with the product itself being CGI.

I didn't realise they had stopped making the old (non-IS) 24, 28 and 35 primes now. Seems a shame, but then again the IS ones look (and sound) better, and have more awesome focus motors. So I guess the only old lens with the super dated bodywork is the 50 CM?

The upper left and 2nd upper right look like photoshoped in to me. They where shot from more down below with a lower focal lenght than the others.

To be honest: impressive picture, but I am really interested in only four lenses of this whole collection.

This is a reminder that buying a dslr is more than just a camera. One has to look into the complete dslr system. 3rd party vendors build their first compatibility hardware around Canon first.

Sheesh, such precision. I just figured I was less than seven orders of magnitude away from owning every EF lens ever made, and decided to leave it at that. Just another seven orders and I'll have them all, mwuhahahaaa.
