Considering the 45$ price tag in function to the number of actual Lego pieces, I believe this is the most accurate Leica set you could ever buy. On bricks exchange websites you could probably buy all the required pieces for 5$ including shipping.

But your desk / shelf will get that unique Lego-Leica look along with the original package!

Used to have unlimited photos storage -> will limit it to 1000 unless you pay -> "And that's a good thing!"

Yeah nah, I'll cancel my Flickr and upload everything on my own website, but thanks for trying.

PSA: this same lens was on sale by the same user in August at 40k us$. It appeared on many photography websites because the weird lens + crazy price were definitely eye catching. I'm 99.99% sure even DP had an article about it back in August, but I cannot find it.
The seller has reduced the price by 10k this time, ONLY 30k us$. My wild guess is that he's fishing for someone with deep pockets who may get lured by all the free advertisement his sale is getting.

I'll not post link to other websites, but if you google Canon 45-200 f2.8 you can find all the news and links from August this year.

TyphoonTW: Wasn't this exact same "rare prototype" on sale a few months ago?

I believe DP had a basically identical article about it, and most people in the comments were like:"Wth is that lens and why does it cost so much?", and now after (I think?) a few months we get the same article for the same lenses. I mean, I'm either having the most Matrix-style deja vu ever, or it's just an old story that has become relevant again because the guy couldn't sell that "prototype" at the absurd price he's asking.

ShaiKhulud: While Nikon's financials are poor, their emerging market presence is mediocre at best. Even in Russia where there is no draconian taxes and a market, full of fairly priced official photo gear, there is very few Nikon services. For example, if you live in Kazan almost every repair will send your camera to Moscow for a month. I've changed shutter on my D750 (via factory warranty) and it was a pain.

Brazil market is even more complicated, because it's flooded with grey market gerar and huge customs taxes. And while It's sad, I'm not surprised. Just as Sony 6 years ago, Nikon is trimming fat in the wake of financial troubles. I hope there will be enough fat to trim though.

1852$ for a ps4 ?__________________? i don't dare to ask the price of apple stuff in brazil xD
From a financial stand point i can see the reason behind "officially" leaving a market where everyone buys grey market to save money, hence making official products and services redundant. It's not a good look though, as apparent from all the doom & gloom in this comment section.

I wish they'd release it for Android as well, but they informed me that the mobile version of Affinity is built on tech that's only available in the iOS system.... 8(
I guess I'll stick to their Windows version (which I love), and rely on software like Snapseed for occasional editing.

I hope they'll refresh the 300 f2.8 soon, because the only way I could ever afford it is if Canon releases a new version and the current one drops in price x___x

Canon pls

TyphoonTW: "Maximum magnification 0.25×"

That's pretty good. I always care a lot about mfd and magnification because I believe they add a lot of versatility to any lens. This 32mm lens might prove itself to be great for daily use, though it's hard to beat the 22mm f2 as a general use, compact and light lens.

Definitely agreed: I sold my Canon aps-c camera and lenses because an M (I got the 50) and a couple of EF-M lenses are just so great for daily use.

I don't usually criticize lenses with unique characteristics aimed at a niche market, but i have to be honest here: I'd rather take a photo with my smartphone rather than with this lens on any of my cameras.

John De Bord Photography: Nikon should've gone just a bit further by throwing in a damn APS-C sized sensor into it! The sales would be off the charts.

do you know how big the lens would have to be for 3000mm on an aps-c sensor? and how much it would cost?

Sixpm: This is another fine example highlighting our present economic model is long out of date as it can never to go on indefinitely. The idea of competition (capitalism) has finally reared it's ugly head, the need to persistently to sell (side effect is pollution, natural resources depletion) to earn enough profit in order to survive is absed while we could have housed and abundance for all people IF the collective (as well as those in the helm of the control seat) are CONSCIOUS to realise this suicidal ways we're heading towards.

In reply to:

MikeStern: 130 million lenses. Ppppffffff.
almost total redo. Most of the existing lenses of Canon will not resolve the high resolution sensors of today and near future.

Put the BS aside and either design short flange distance friendly lenses (you are very late in the game) or make giant mirrorless bodies to use the existing newer lens line up which are designed for old fashion mirror to clank down clunk up in the body of the camera so it will be a pointless attempt to utilize your million lenses.

Don’t know what else to tell you Canon.

If you use Canon's 16-35 f2.8 III, 24-70 f2.8 II and 70-200 f2.8 II lenses (not to mention some of the 300mm+ f2.8 or f4 primes) and produce bad photos, I have some bad news for you, and they're not gear related.
