Can I borrow $3,600 from someone?

CANON 200MM F/1.8

This lens is sitting for sale at a local shop. It's a monster for it's focal length, but it would be fun to shoot!

I used to be able to check out glass like that from the photoengineering shop in the basement.

I have a friend with one of those. Great lens.

My 200/2 is one of my favorite lenses.

well, since I am no longer the manager of digital imaging at National Geographic, my access to the shop and their tools is kinda limited these days...

The apex adaptor on my Punisher doorbuster was machined on a NattyG camera shop lathe.

I never thought to look for photo equipment on craigslist because of the sketchyness of it but sense you posted that lens I looked. Everything is astronomically over priced in my area. Although I found some used market priced 70-200 4L lenses in my area but those users had links to POTN, bummer...

How much would need for all of this? Around $750k roughly



I counted about 40-45 bodies and well we all know how much lenses are these days...
