You get an idea of how big a polar bears head is.

Yes, that might be the largest I've seen, and I've seen several.

Actually im more worried about the polar bear than the lens. Im not sure if the metal is so good for his teeth and possible glas shards arent either!

Polar bear and the 70-200

Hi all,

Sorry if this post is misplaced, was not sure where to post it. Found the below link in the digital picture where you can see the 70-200 in a polar bear's ownership. I would not want to be in the shoes of the previous owner  :P:

On a separate note, the lens is really solidly built as one can see...

 Cheers!
