    I'm trying to figure out how much can cost this lens? I have found no
    reference on WEB.

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't know, but the EF 5.6 version costs over $100,000 US!

  4. None are currently on sale on Ebay but from a quick google search I saw the
    average starting bid was between $1200-$1800 US. I did not do any research
    to see how they actually sold. This lens only works with stop down metering
    on the newer FD bodies so that could create a limitation in the price. more

    Search on Google, "Canon 1200mm f/11 price" and you'll find it quickly enough.

    The good side to housing out here is...
    Once you own something, after a couple years, you can afford to buy a house
    outright just about anywhere else if you move.

    We've made more in increased value on our home in the last three years than
    our combined salaries from those same three years. -It's ridiculous, but
    true...

    This is what I tried to do - unfortunately could not find anything,
    including eBay...

    Yes....In 1980 I bought a house in Menlo Park, California for $115 thousand.
    In 1996 I sold it for $360 thousand. I moved to Salem, Oregon and bought a
    house twice as big, on a lot twice as big, in a much better location for
    $195 thousand, and put the balance into my retirement plan.

    Yes you can.

    Directions:
    1. Cover all windows...
    2. Cut out a big hole from a large piece of cardboard that otherwise
    completely covers the window opposite the wall.
    3. Cover the hole with a paper plate.
    4. Now... Cover the wall opposite the window with photo paper.
    5. Remove the paper plate for a given amount of time...then replace.

    Process paper in huge, spa-size dveloper.

    Voila!
    You've got a pin-hole house-cam!
    :)

    2 1/2 years ago, we paid $457,000 for our house.
    It just appraised for $750,000+.
    Ridiculous!

    That was more than a hint. In there you will find the answer at various sites.
