"A copy of one of the largest interchangeable lenses for SLRs ever produced has emerged for sale second-hand at a UK retailer. Canon's massive EF 1200mm f/5.6 L USM is a rare beast, and the longest lens in the world with AF. MPB Photographic describes it as being in mint condition and has priced the lens at £99,000."
The lens was in production for a limited time in the '90s, and it's not known exactly how many copies are in existence. According B&H, which also came into possession of a copy of the lens in 2009, it's rumored that there are around 20. The lens weighs in at 16.5kg / 36.3 lbs, and provides an angle of view of only 2.5°. It features two fluorite elements and a ten-bladed aperture. Naturally, it comes with its own locking case, official leather lens cap and a drop-in Gelatin II filter."
From the sellers web site:
"This incredibly rare lens is in virtually immaculate condition with barely a discernable mark anywhere on the barrel. Optically stunning, it has no marks or scratches on any of its 13 elements. The lens mount is clean and free of any scratches, as is the drop in Gelatin II filter. The built-in lens hood extends and locks securely.
The focus ring moves with a smooth and fluid motion, as does the rotatable lens mount. All buttons move and lock perfectly. A suitable tripod and head are available upon request.
This is a beautiful example of this incredible and rare lens, and we welcome enquiries from all around the world.
