    Default How Much?

    Canon has an EF 1200mm f5.6L lens, complete with it's own carrying handle. It is a special order item from Canon Japan only.

    How much do you think this monster of a lens costs?

    Please don't post the answer straightaway if you know... let others guess first!

    I am very sure it won't cost as much as a harbor telescope, so can I still answer your question?

    My guess: US$25,000

    If I remember correctly, you can buy a pretty good family size car with that lens. Yes, in Singapore.

    1200mm is the maximum? Definitely cost of a bomb.

    I believe it costs around Sing$200,000. I was told this by a Canon rep when he brought the lens for a demo to NUS last year. Anyone remember this? It was supported by two fat sturdy tripods.
