1200mm 5.6L

I had a chance to peek at a Canon 1200mm 5.6L Ultrasonic yesterday. It was being used by a Sports Illustrated photographer at the St. Louis Cardinal baseball game. He was shooting from behind the bleachers towards home plate and even at a distance of about 500-feet, the viewfinder was filled with a super sharp and bright image of the batter and catcher. An amazing lens and according to the SI guy, there are only 6 of them in the U.S. They carry a $90,000 price tag. An amazing piece of glass! Does anyone on this forum have any shots taken with this lens?
