If I had the money, I'd seriously consider buying this because I think it has value to a collector and its value will rise. It would also be a hoot to use, which is more than can be said for most things people collect. At very least, I'd be the coolest photographer on the block.


Not compared to the 1200-1700 Nikkor.

The lens made sense back in the days of film. Now you could stick a crop camera on a 800 f5.6 and get the same reach.
Here's the lens being using back in the days of film on just a monopod at a San Francisco 49er game.

So it looks like whoever purchased the lens in 2009, when B&H flipped it for $99,000, would have seen their investment grow by $65,000 in 5 years. Not a bad ROI.

Rumor had it that the US Navy purchased the last eight 1200mm lenses that Canon made.

99k in Vanguard VTI etf for five last five years would have become about 220,000 depending on the end dates. Renting would have made sense assuming you could rent it off spys, software geeks and the like that control the supply mulalalalalah.
