It's been posted a few times already. Not really surprised it hasn't sold yet.

you'd think with the amount of exposure it gets on this forum alone, somone would have snatched it up.
Perhaps we could all pool together and buy it collectively, being able to use it upon request? Meh...

Buy this lens and start a "Where's 1200" thread.
Mail it to POTN members.
It just needs a cute name like nifty fifty. ;-)a

About $120,000 over my budget...

Has anyone here ever used one of these monsters? If so, can we see some pictures, and maybe a description of how many miles away the subject was? :-)

I'm waiting for the f2.8 IS version to come out before I pick one up. Besides, the description says pack mule not included.

If you can afford this bad boy you can afford an assistant to lug your stuff around all day :). Hell get a college credit intern!

Looks like the price went up...

Last time B&H had one on offer it was only $99K or so.

I'm really not sure what purpose this lens serves... surveillance?
