Is this the world's most expensive lens? (not Pentax)

Sorry for the non-Pentax related topic, but I've never seen it before...

It has to be a Canon, and its price is phenomenal. On sale now at B&H:

Used Canon | Super Telephoto 1200mm f/5.6L EF USM | 2527A001

Yours to buy now, or take out a mortgage for it!

"...the largest tele lens for non-military applications across the globe."

Kinda says it all, doesn't it? At 564 lbs., though, it's more than just big. On the plus side, though,
Both of them have the added bonus of making Sigma's latest seem like a bargain!

If you have enough money , you can call up Pentax - or any other companies . I'm sure they will custom make just about any lens you want
