why does this mug cost so much money?

An assumption, but probably due to the fact that their target demographic is accustomed to spending a lot of money as photography is an expensive hobby to be had. Pretty much taking advantage of the market while they can.

I would also add that there is more start-up investment in such a detailed resin mold/replica process (compared to your average travel cups)

...and yes, target market is known for having deeper-than-average pockets. :)

I wonder how many shots of expresso you can fit into these to make you sharp in the morning.

I was thinking maybe a 50mm f1.8 replica espresso cup would be handy.

canonmugs.com is legit after all! I got my 70-200 thermos and the coffee cup today. They don't communicate very well, but they DID deliver!

these things look cool! just one thought tho, not to worry anyone but we all know that you can't take liquids onto a plane but these things look so real that anyone would be able to smuggle liquids or powders onto a plane, (NOT THAT I WANT TO DO THIS OF COURSE) a couple of these things in a camera bag, or is it just me being paranoid??

Got mine from CanonMugs.com and transaction was OK. Received mine 7 days after placing order but this was a recent order and not a "pre-order". A picture and more info in my blog at http://lightdescriptio​n.blogspot.com/2010/05​/coffee.html (external link) .

that's why we have to put our bags through x-ray machines before going onto a plane.

I wonder if the non-L lens mugs are cheaper?

50 f.18 would be like a shot glass. :D
