^ It'd be cool to mount that puppy on the back of a pickup truck, and shoot through the rear window. The real **** is backing up to line up the shot.  :p

I think it's time for this lens to have its own forum :)

How many times do we have to see these posts?

Yes, we all know B&H has a 1200mm from time to time. Thanks for the update.

;)

It used to be $95,000. I guess that's what a recession will do.

I understand this is actually a different example. Maybe it's in better condition?

1200mm Portrait. How far?

I was just thinking. I see the 1200mm Canon 'L' posted about every month. At $120,000 for the lens alone, and $693.55 for the cheapest shipping, it is a spectacle.

However, here is my question; How far is that 1200mm going to get you? For instance, lets say I want to take a nice above the shoulders portrait. I am in a completely flat field in the middle of nowhere. How far away do I need to be for this shot? Like 4.2 miles? hahaha
:cool:

On a 800mm + 5d2 you'd need to be about 15-25 meters depending how fat your subject is.

I heard the 95k one went for 110k in-store. For an extra 400mm is it really worth the $109,000 premium? You could easily simulate the focal length by slapping on a 50d on a 800mm.

well according to an app on my iphone for the object to be 1x1 metre you would have to be standing 50 metres back.

What app is that? I might need to try it out. :)

On a full frame sensor this would be 20,8 meters (landscape photo).

How do we do that?
Well, lets say we want to take a picture of a head and we measure it about 40 cm (a bit shoulders to go along).

Next we take the tangens of the vertical angle from the 1200mm lens on a full frame body (1°10") being 0,01920098090772349900​8214310698656

Next we do the math and devide 0,4 meters to 0,01920098090772349900​8214310698656 = 20,8 meters

The degrees from different lenses you can find in the database. For the tangens you have the mathematic setting of the windows calculator. The rest speeks for itself. Works every time and is pretty acurate.

Good luck.

Alain,
