    300mm f/2!



    Here is worlds fastest 300mm lens for 35mm photography http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/companies/nikon/nikkoresources/telephotos/300mmedif20/index.htm


    Yeah it's a Nikon, but who cares just convert it. If anything it's way cool to drean about.[H]


    By the way, has anyone seen what thislens costs?My guess is probably a LOT more than I have in bank account!


    Cheers,


    John.

    Impressive. I never heard of the thing.


    I'm sure plenty of sports photographers would pay through the nose for one, so there must be a good reason it isn't being made now.

    Probably because of cost.

    The cost must be *very* high to keep people from wanting it.


    Though I imagine it would be... 200mm f/2.8 a fraction the cost of 200mm f/2 (I know there are other reasons for this besides the extra stop). So with the already considerable expense of the 300 f/2.8, I could readily believe that if canon made a 300 f/2 today it would easily be their most expensive current lens.

    It has the same apeture to focal length ratio as the 600mm f/4. Thats one huge 300mm prime! It must have incredible background blur.

    Looks like a neat lens. It would probably go well with the Carl Zeiss 150mm f/1.2 (not a typo):

    Wow. There isn't much easily found info online about the lens. I tried to look it up and google just gave me the above post


    I think that beats the 300 f/2 in terms of impressiveness of specs (iq may be another matter for all I know).


    Not that I would *want* one or anything.


    (Now please excuse me while I wipe the drool off my keyboard.)

    I'm going to start a petition drive to get Canon or Zeiss to make a 200/1.0. Who wants to sign up? []
