    Used Canon | Super Telephoto 1200mm f/5.6L EF USM | 2527A001

    What if you were to add a 2x extender on that thing? Or dazy chain several 2x extenders... If I had the money, I would buy it and sell photos to NASA lol



    EDIT: Woops, wrong section

    Old news, this lens was first made years ago, one of the UK news papers used one for Prince Charles and Lady Diana's wedding in 1982

    ding ding ding.. we have a winner!

    Another 1200mm thread has been created.... now comes threads pointing to other REALLY big lenses.

    I have a 60's takumar 500 f/4 which is FOV 1000mm when my G1 is adapter to it.



    I'm just pullin your chain but Seriously, this lens has been around since the early 90s and threads discussing it open up annually. I think this was the last one which makes this one the first for 2010.

    There's a one-owner Nikkor 1200mm f/11 ED for sale right now on Photo.net for only $2,500. As in two thousand five hundred dollars. According to Bjiorn Rorslett's review of that lens, with an appropriate tripod, the 1200mm f/11 has superb optics and makes great images. Apparently, only 366 of these lenses were built by Nikon.

    Here's the reference for it. Nikkor Ai-S 1200mm f11 ED-IF $2,500 -- $2500 - photo.net
