Should I buy it?
 
I'm getting an itchy finger, it is a [b]NICE[/b] lens ;).

Edit: For those not in the know, the Canon 1200mm [color=red]L[/color] is not only the largest lens Canon has ever made, its also the most expensive and as far as I know the rarest. Literally only a handful of these were ever made (had to be custom made) and there probably are only a handful of people on the planet that even KNOW exactly who has them. ;)

I don't see why not. Splurge a little, you deserve it! :)

drauka99 01/09/2008 04:30 PM

I was wondering when you would see it , Jeffrey already has it on order :D

change over to Nikon and you can get a 1200-1700 zoom :D only 15 ever made

Ritten 01/09/2008 04:32 PM

No. You should not. Go to the dentist. :)

Jeffrey CAN'T have it because I'm getting ready to put my order in! :mad: He can't! He can go play with his little lenses and leave these REAL lenses for me! ME! ME! ME!

Live504 01/09/2008 04:33 PM

To much money for me :D

You could buy a small telescope and have an adapter machined for less than that.

Jeffrey Porter 01/09/2008 04:35 PM

I'll rent it to you. $1500 a day, including days in transit to and from me.

Dino, tell you what, economize. Say you spot a grizzly you want a shot of, you just sneak up on him, wave hi, get him to say cheezeburger---get your shot with a simple lens...real nice teeth---
Then climb a tree fast!
