Now For Sale 2nd Hand

This Canon 5.2 metre lens was up for sale on ebay before Solstice. Canon says of the lens:
This is the only ultra-telephoto lens in the world capable of taking photographs of objects 18 to 32 miles away (30km to 52kms away). Having a focal length of 5200mm, Canon Mirror Lens 5200mm can obtain one hundred times as large an object image as that of a 50mm lens.
The asking price on ebay was apparently $45K. Funny, but it didn't sell. The video below gives you an idea of what this lens is capable of.

And John apparently has dibs on it for a birthday present.
