I just opened my new 28-70mm f/2 and I think our community needs to come up with a nickname for this lens.

Even after knowing the specs and seeing comparisons online, the size is truly ridiculous!

Initial naming ideas: The Anchor? The Anvil? The Cinder Block?

I've heard this before I think in reference to either the 200 f/2 or 135 f/2? (which would be objectively funny, given the latter's modest price and appearance).

It's gotta be something bigger than the brick. Like a cinder block. :)

That’s the EF 85L I believe. What about the 55 gallon drum?

To me, it looks like a brute of a lens so I guess "The Brute" would be my offering.:-)
