p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Canon EF 1200mm?


So I was digging around on Canon's site and found this lens here

Just out of curiosity, has anyone ever seen it/used it?


More importantly how much do you figure it costs?

$99K? Not bad, I'll just have to work a summer job... for the next 33 summers....

You see that it has a minimum focusing distance of about 50 feet? yikes

It also has a FOV of 1 degree. I guess it would be a good candid lens.

So we have the 800mm 5.6 coming to us soon...
Do you think they will ever offer this lens at a price us mere photography mortals can afford? maybe add IS and make it weigh 22 pounds instead of 33?

That's an awesome shot. And he hand-held the lens (1200mm) with a SS of only 1/200. Incredible.

Yes, many have seen it because this stupid subject gets posted about every 3 months. If you did a search first, you would know that.

You'd think Canon models would be dressed with a red tube instead of the red triangle style top. Must be a trade show department oversight in consistent messaging.
