I wish it came in "M" mount.  The mirrorless cameras are just so much less bulky.

I had the pleasure of having a look through one of these 1200s in '97. It was an impressive beast.
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

There is a couple of black ones, too, made for German customs and special forces. They found the white ones a little too conspicuous... ;)

After watching this I think I'm ok with paying 2499$ for a 70-200.

Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

I now realize what a bargain I turned down recently. I was offered an Olympus OM Zuiko 1000mm f/11 at the camera repair shop when I had my OM-10 serviced. Only £1000 including original case and key.

I already have the adapter...

Really nice work gerald, good to see the old girl getting a new lease of life. How does it compare to the 600 and 2x TC, or even 800 and 1.4TC?

The Samyang 650-1300 is a lot cheaper and much more versatile :D

€ 329,00 in the Netherlands
