Dear Santa...

After that last downer of a post, and for no other reason than the *drool* factor, I figured I'd make a quick post about the most insane lens for Canon cameras. The 1200mm f5.6L USM lens. I made a reference to it in an earlier post, but decided to do a little digging for fun. Here's what I found:

A DPReview discussion about the lens.

A writeup by a guy who had the opportunity to play with one at the 2002 Olympics.

An airliner photography page. Scroll down about halfway to see a couple of shots of the lens with a little teeny DSLR camera hanging off of it.
