Sharing a Canon super telephoto lens

I was present when there was some discussion at the Photography Day over the weekend at Living History Farms about purchasing a Canon super telephoto (400mm, 500mm, 600mm or 800mm) lens and spliting the cost and the usage among a dozen Des Moines photographers.  It got me thinking that perhaps there maybe enough interest among either 6 or 12 LAPC photographers to do the same. 

If interested, please email [email protected] with the following information: your name, which Canon super telephoto len(s) you are interested in, any accessories we need to purchase at the same time, your thoughts on how to insure it and your thoughts on how to share it among the LAPC photographers.

Finally, for you Nikon users, this should also work.  If someone wants to persue it, please let me know.


  1. Sounds very interesting. There are sure going to have to be some strict rules to adhere to. Would need a really good tripod head to go with it.
