    You are paying because it is an actual usable lens, not a telescope.

    Telescopes have a larger market and it balances out the development and production costs.

    This lens took over a year to grow...

    Both are luxurious items that you don't have to have. One could argue you can make a much faster car for a third of the cost. But it's not a Ferrari.

    At least with the lens you can have the very...

    Yup, VW Karmann Ghia. Just bought it about a month ago. I knew the owner who had it for 10 years. I told him multiple times when he is ready to sell it I want it. Well he did and I didn't hesitate to...

    Indeed, I would love to own a Enzo. But given the choice I'd probably go for the F40. If we are talking about Ferrari.

    A modern Ferrari I would love to own would be an F8 Tributo.

    But I am a...

    Those look great at least on my phone. I used 1200mm on my 60D back in the day quite a bit. That is a lot of focal length. But amazing how short it feels when you are photographing skittish birds....

    1200mm is long, but not that ridiculous. Certainly not nearly as insane as the extreme size and weight would suggest. I don't bird right now much simply because I have not modified the mount and...

    1200mm f/5.6 L.

    There is a 1200mm for auction per this article. Has always been a dream lens for me. If in the future I was ever in a position to buy this lens somehow someway. I 100% would.

    Never underestimate the fun factor of window shopping and the anticipation of a possible new toy.:D

    Reminds me when I was window shopping the 1D II or 1DS II.

    Does that date me?! HAHA.

    https://www.adorama.com/car3.html

    Well, it's technically a listed item. No extra information but at least we can window shop.:D

    And I guess we now have a solid price.

    So to clarify it's not nessarily the fact they operate right at the fringe, which I don't have access to a mark one lens to measure it's draw and verify that theory. But it's definately possible....

    Yeah, but I know for a fact Canon is more than smart enough to allow for full performance. The 1DX III can drive it at noticeably faster FPS, and the R5/R6 can allow for 12FPS on the more modern...

    Well that is a disappointment.

    Maybe they will make an update to allow for that. Because I can't see a good reason not to allow it.

    It really drives home the relevancy of the 1Dx III for niche applications it was meant for. Pure unadulterated speed.:D

    Looks like an amazing camera.

    I already owned the 1DX III, bought it brand new for $6500 plus tax. But ended up returning it.

    Ultimately it was the most amazing camera I ever used. But with the...

    100%

    I do find it interesting the thought of a 1200mm f/8. Definitely would fit my style of shooting.

    Obviously I always dream of an opportunity to own even the old 1200mm f/5.6. It is a beyond...

    My main curiosity is when then they will release them.

    I have my doubts about the 1200mm f/8 if there is no patents. But I wouldn't nessarily be surprised if they did release a lens like that...

    Call me nostalgic, but I have always wanted to shoot the 600mm f/4 IS and own it for a little bit. It was one of those lenses I only dreamed of owning for well over a decade. And even shooting it on...

    Indeed, that pretty much was my opinion. That the 600 II and 1.4x is not bad. I think the 1200 and 1120 comparison is still not too bad. I'd give the nod to the 800 1.4 combo at that point but still...

    I'm referring to wide open IQ especially at the 1200mm'ish range. There the 600mm III has a definite disadvantage.

    As with Bryans awesome review, I rarely ever stop down with a super telephoto...

    For me, I think the IQ is not as good if you are comparing it to the 800mm, and the 800+1.4. Or even the II with extenders. It would nessarily be a deal breaker, but I feel like at $13,000 plus tax....

    On the subject of big white image quality, I am surprised on two counts. The 800mm f/5.6 holds its own compared to the 600mm f/4 II and the 600mm f/4 III. And the mark III's IQ is not really an...

    For sure, and while I would be totally stoked to use even the orginal 600mm f/4 IS my ultimate lens is still the 800. For me I have made good use of even 1200mm on a 1.6 crop body with my 600. So it...

    I still have my Minolta 600mm which I will probably never sell. I'll never stop birding, but I can't justify spending huge dollars unless I make money with it.

    That is not to say if/when I have a...
