    What was that white lens, anyway? I have never seen a white lens before.

    I'm not sure of the name myself. My friend had one very similar. Very large and clunky. Not very fast either. But was image stabilized I believe. Fun to play with. Not fun to hold!

    One of these with one of these.

    And some dark skies to go with, please.

    I mean, you did say price no object?

    A dedicated darkroom, fully equipped, with colour processing equipment, and enough time to create the volume necessary to do it justice.

    12x20 "lightweight" Wisner.

    A friend bought one a couple years back, and it is just a mind blowing camera... Of course I would need a 1000 sheets of film. A larger darkroom and enough paper to practice.
    * Just because your eyes are closed, doesn't mean the lights in the darkroom are off. *
    * When the film you put in the camera is worth more than the camera you put the film in... *
    * When I started using 8x10, it amazed me how many shots were close to the car. *

    Is he a dentist or something?

    Me? Oh, probably an F6, RZ67 Pro II, Mamiya 7, or whatever. :P

    For me 'bling' would be an M7 with an f1.0 Noctilux. Yeah, it's hardly bling and probably no normal (non-camera loving people) would even take notice, but considering the price I'd kinda consider it bling. Although I'd carry it everywhere so I'm not really sure it counts.

    Does he rent the sherpa who carries his gear on a day-to-day basis or does his manservant deign to carry it for him?
    For me, it'd be a Leica MP LHSA in hammertone lacquer in the set with a matching Summicron f/2.0 35 mm and Rapidwinder. I'd carry it myself in a dainty little Billingham bag ...

    It's a Canon 600mm. They actually have another even longer;

    Canon's longest production telephoto lens (a 1200/5.6L is probably still available on special order at a price around $75,000!)
    :o
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    They're a big hit with guys who always wanted a "Huge white thing".... ;-)

    Also, it makes them more visible at the edge of sports events.
