$25K less than the one listed at B&H (Maybe it doesn't include a lens cap......)

Remember the used 1200 that was on B&H's website a couple of years ago? I think they were also asking close to that 100K mark. Inski94 seeing as you found it I think you should buy it and let us know how you like it..

I think I would hold out for the updated version with the New IS. I am sure there will be a price increase with that but the extra 4 stops would be worth it.

Checking license plates? Maybe they were filming videos for the guys in the SEC, who downloaded all that porn.

I love how they have 6 different LensCoats specifically for the 1200. Seems like major overkill given that there are something like less than 20 of these in existence.

The ad say great for wild life photography, the last time I look it weights too much to be carry in your backpack, for the price does it come with a donkey or camel?

Interesting... I will have to sell some stuffs before I can buy one...
I did think it a bit funny that B&H offers a camo lens coat for this thing... as of you could disguise it somehow... the guys on the space station can prolly see it...

the last round of threads about this thing (when TDP did the test on it for BH) the guy that makes the lens coats (member here I think) had a video of the coat being made.

The flare and uncontrollable CA along with the sub-par sharpness don't make that lens worth the money.

That scoundrel's IQ can probably be measured on the seismic scale.

Do not cross the equator with this lens, the results might disappoint. You can shoot some "African" wildlife with it, but the lens coatings are really optimized to work best with Sports, and, of course, northern wildlife.

Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6 L USM Lens - $95000 (Montreal)
Date: 2010-04-23, 10:47AM EDT

Canon lens for sale

Very rare Canon lens that was paid 105000$ in 2002.

This lens was only used by the SPVM but they don't need it anymore.

Perfect for professional photografers who need long range (Sports, African and northern wildlife, etc...)
