That, my friends, is Canon’s biggest lens, the Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6L. For obvious reasons, they only make a handful of these every year. The cost? Approximately $10,000 $100,000 if I remember correctly.

    Holy f*! And that’s some serious tripod you need there too! :-p

  3. Like the handle. Check out links to the Zeiss/Hasselblad 1700 mm lens, Nikon 1200-1700 mm zoom, and 2000 mm and 5000 mm reflectors:

    My dad and I have also used his Celestron 90 mm and 8-inch (those are barrel diameters) reflector telescopes as 1000 mm f/11 and 2000 mm f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain reflector telescopes as telephotos too.

    So… a hundred thousand dollar lens…for what application? Taking pictures of a bird in Winnipeg? From your house?
