Size matters

All I want for Christmas is this beast. Say hello to my little friend, a Canon 1200mm f.5.6L series lens. This bad boy has a minimum focusing distance of 49 feet, is 32 inches long and tips the scales at a hefty 36 pounds. It comes with a leather lens cap, an aluminum suitcase and the knowledge that you own a camera lens that costs the same amount as a small home. This lens is available in the used camera department of BH Photo Video for a paltry $120,000.00 bucks. This is the longest fixed focal length lens ever built by Canon and was a special order item taking almost 18 months to produce. Just think how cool you would look on the sidelines of a Tracy Raiders game using this puppy to take pictures?
