Had me going until I saw the box reads "lens hood included".  Canon would sell that separately.

With 'L' lenses they're usually included ;)

Pretty small box for what would be a huge lens.

Nah, Canon probably wants you to chew on the lens when not shooting to improve on your dental health!  :P

Box is too small.

The super telephotos and f/2.8 300s come in flight cases, which are encased in a large box, quite different from the smaller lenses. A 600mm f/2.8 would have a 214mm (8.5") wide front objective.

Impressive.

After buying one of these 37.5x superzooms, I'll probably have nothing else to eat.

Of course it has the new Canon Quadruple IS-system and the best thing is the price: £ 2499,- uk pounds
