Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6 L Focal Length Comparison

There are only about 20 copies of the very rare Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6 L USM lens in the world. Canon made only a handful of them to test its viability. By the way, this is not the only 1200mm lens Canon had manufactured. They had also experimented with the FDn 1200mm f/5.6 lens, with a built-in extender during the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. This was the ancient forerunner to their current EF 200-400mm f/4L IS 1.4X Extender USM lens that went on sale last year. I love this amazing Super Telephoto lens.

The people at MPB Photographic is selling a copy of the EF 1200mm f/5.6L USM lens for 100,000 Pound Sterling or about US $ 166,000. In order to drum up some excitement for the sale, they have decided to shoot some photos in the heart of London, right on the Mall, leading straight to Buckingham Palace. All of the photos below were taken with a Canon EOS-1D X camera. If you have some spare cash lying around, you may be interested in this lens. Don't know if MPB will take credit card for this purchase.
