A Photographic Journey with the Legendary Canon EF 1200mm Lens - PetaPixel - PetaPixel (blog)

Our friends at Canon cannot even tell us how many of these lenses were made, with any certainty. This lens is so rare that Canon does not even possess an example after the company’s one copy was damaged beyond repair in a shipping mishap. The B&H Used Department is welcoming its third Canon 1200mm lens. The last one to visit the SuperStore was sold in 2009. When the assistant manager of the Web Content department comes to your desk and says that your presence is requested in the conference room, it usually means something cool is about to happen. I walked into a room full of people and was told — not asked — that I needed to take photos with this lens and write about the experience. History The Canon EF 1200mm f/5. 6 L USM lens was born with the Canon FD mount and reportedly first appeared in 1984, at the Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles, California. Five lenses were used by the media to cover the Games and then the lenses were shipped back to Japan and later converted to the EF mount. According to Canon, this is the longest lens in the world with full autofocus capability. Canon made this lens available by special order only. A $10,000 deposit was required with the order and manufacturing would only start when several lenses were put on order. Sports Illustrated magazine purchased two 1200mm lenses in the 1990’s. Canon lent a lens to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in 1999, so they could document Major League Baseball slugger Mark McGuire’s single-season home-run record attempt from center... photographing every pitch McGuire faced that season. The extreme focal length of the lens gives a unique perspective of the distant view from the outfield fence that other lenses cannot capture. Inside the metal barrel, two of the lens elements are constructed from enormous fluorite crystals that, according to lore, took more than a year to grow. The lens is constructed of metal and painted in Canon’s signature white. Canon’s top professional lenses carry the “L” designation and a distinctive red band around the lens. The white paint applied to Canon’s large telephoto started as a practical application to enhance thermal stability for their largest lenses.
