He looks uncomfortable, I think he does better in front of the lens.   ;)

Hoping what?  That the President is under an NDA with Canon and is testing a 35L MkII?   :-X

It or a similar photo was posted here long ago, and soon turned into a political name calling and resulted in bans and the topics removal.
I hope it does not have to be repeated.

Hey, is that a BorrowLenses sticker on the bottom side of the lens??? 
A few cameras and lenses and a lot of creative energy and imagination.

Yes, it is the 35mm 1.4L lens.  The photo is from 2009 and comes from the White House photo stream on Flickr -
