My work has purchased FLIR and WestCam cameras in excess of $250K, but it is for government work. What is the most expensive equipment you have seen people carrying around?

This Canon-EF-1200mm-f-5.6-L is over $100K used!

Watched a vid on that thing, it's NUTS!
The most expensive thing I've seen recently was some large-scale Hasselblad stuff in the mid 40K range

I worked on the set of Gatorade's Super Bowl Commercial last year. I honestly couldn't even add up the total cost of the stuff in the room. Let alone the budgets for the cast a crew. Especially when you have Spike Lee on the payroll. Plus there was over 100k (watt's not money) of power to light ONE person at a time.

B&H has had one of those for sale seems like forever. I'll take the 800 f5.6L plus 1.4X over one of those, better IQ, just a little easier to haul around and a little cheaper! (well a lot cheaper)

Every time I see shots from the 800 my wallet starts quivering!

What in the world does the government need a lens like that for? You could spy on the Premiere of China while standing in Kansas with that thing.
