Description

Canon

Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6L USM Super-telephoto Lens

 
Produced for a limited period through the 1990s, the Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6 L USM lens is one of the most lauded pieces of photographic equipment in the world.
 
Weighing in at 16.5kg, 33 inches long and 9 inches wide at the front element, this is not a piece of kit to be taken lightly. This lens requires a serious tripod and head set-up. To boot, the lockable aluminium case is even heavier than the lens but peace of mind is invaluable when it comes to something this rare. 
 
The lens comprises of 13 elements in 10 groups, creating a diagonal angle of view of only 2.5°, solidifying its status as a real monster of the telephoto world. The fluorite crystals that make two of the elements reportedly took over a year to grow. This coupled with Canon’s famous L series glass and coatings create amazingly sharp images across the entire frame, from an aperture of f/5.6 all the way through to f/32. A ten bladed diaphragm gives pleasing bokeh and, with it’s relatively fast maximum aperture of f/5.6, the lens can yield some surprising results.
 
Given its size and weight this lens is incredibly quick to find focus, using Canon’s USM system to guide the elements into the optimum position as quickly as possible. Minimum focussing distance is a hefty 14 metres but what else would you expect with a lens with this sheer reach?
 
The EF 1200mm features several modes, located at the rear left of the lens. These include 3 different focusing speeds, focus preset, AF/MF switch, tone switch and focus limiting. The lens mount is also of unique design. A knob to the rear allows you to control the smoothness with which you can turn the entire rear section of the lens allowing the user to shoot in portrait, landscape or anywhere in between without you having to turn the entire lens! The rear of the lens also houses the 42mm drop in filter.
 
Featuring a huge built in lens hood to optimise results in any shooting environment, the Canon EF 1200mm can also be coupled with a 1.4x or 2x extender. If 1200mm isn’t long enough for you, you can enjoy focal lengths of 1680mm f/8 and 2400mm f/11 with these extenders respectively.
 
With the serial code 220, from our efforts we have summised that this lens was built towards the rear end of Canon’s limited 1200mm production run.
