And I here thought I was well endowed (in the lens department -- I imply nothing else!). After seeing this (yes, this is a picture I shot today with my puny 100-400 mm Mark II, half the length, quarter the weight, and sixth the price of the lens this little woman (perhaps a descendant of Louisa May Alcott, which would be tres apropos, this being Concord MA!)) carried like Atlas carried the Globe. But enough obscure literary references! I beat a fast retreat, tail (or what passes for it) between legs.

I think it's fair to say that my chances of spotting a bald eagle sporting a mohawk were better this day than having this chance encounter with a Canon 800mm in full flamingo camo.

I just think its a purse in disguise. :)

Actually I'd be interested in why you think it a Canon 800? It certainly doesn't resemble the current offering, and not just as related to the color.

Looks like the 600II with a 1.4x extender. This one likes to have attention!

WimDel could be wright!

Seems like someone spent a little photoshop time changing the black cover into pink. Left some residu here and there :-P

Good thinking combined with the blond woman :lol:

Where's a girl like this going with a lens like that? :-P

Tx for posting!

It's legit. LensCoat can make any LensCoat lens cover in pink, pink camo and a several other colors.

OK, but can someone explain what's the point?

I don't see the use of it!

A lenscoat is supposed to cover the bright (white) of the big lenses to increase your chanses in the wild.

The woman in the picture is clearly in "the green" so ...???

Just maybe it's a scientific thing. Maybe animals see in black and white and I know to get the best black possible red is used to print.

LensCoat covers have many benefits, camouflage - breaking up the shape of the lens is just one of them. The cover provide protection from bumps, nicks and scratches. The cover also provide some protection from the elements and it acts as a thermal barrier keeping the lens cooler in hot temps and warmer in cold making your lens more comfortable to handle.

If your shooting sports on the side of the field you probably dont camo but you want the other protections of a LensCoat you get a solid color.

I think you're right. The lens in the photo has 3 stabilization modes, just like the 600mm II. The 800mm Canon has just two modes.

That will definitely attract wildlife, but to run in the opposite direction.
