For the Record Canon

I’ll take one of these:

This 50mm f/1.2 cappuccino cup is in response to the fabulous coffee mug that looks like a 70–200mm lens, which Canon was giving out at the Winter Olympics to people who had better watch their back when I’m around.

By the way, there’s a new version of the popular zoom lens that I want almost more than I want another cappuccino. Pre-order it now and I get a little closer. To the cappuccino.

Canon 70–200mm f/2.8L IS EF II USM lens available for pre-order at Amazon.

What’s new about the 70–200 II? It is said to be sharper, faster to focus, and have improved IS over the original. That said, the original is a terrific lens. Here’s a shot I made with one.

Thanks to ProLost reader Alex Turner for the heads up: The Mug is now available for pre-order from Vistek.

Numerous folks have also pointed out the 24–105 “ice cream cup” (is that a way of saying that it will melt and give you cancer if you put hot liquid in it?) is available on eBay.

Personally, I like my mugs f/2.8 or faster, so I’m going with the 70–200.
