    Used: $99,000


    <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_EF_1200mm_lens>

    MSRP US$ $89,579

    This lens comes with its own heavy-duty tripod and case, and is built
    only by request.

    Few of these lenses exist; Sports Illustrated magazine owns two of
    them, as does Canon Professional Services and James Jannard, the
    billionaire founder of Oakley.

    A bit of the big side: <http://www.pbase.com/image/67748045>

    I like the recommended $5.95 cleaning kit.

    Also, from the Features tab:

    "Apart from a few minor cosmetic blemishes, this particular lens is
    extremely clean inside and out. Included with this lens is a leather
    slip-on 'lens cap', a fitted aluminum trunk case, and a prodigious
    measure of ego satisfaction. Weighing in at over 36lbs and an overall
    length of 33 inches, a sturdy tripod and pan/tilt head is highly
    recommended. Pack mule not included. "

    You'd think they could at least include a mail-in rebate for the mule.
