I was playing NCAA football 2012 on the Xbox and saw this on the sidelines. It's not even real, yet I'm jealous.

Can anyone guess what lenses these are? The small one looks like a 70-200L to me, I don't know about the bigger one. Cameras appear to be 1D's.

The smaller lens looks like a 70-200 2.8L indeed.


The bigger one is confusing me as I don't find other lenses than the 70-200mm with the focussing window between two black rings. And the position of the tripod mount means it's a pretty big lens. :roll:

Haha, looks like his secondary body has a 70-200 f/2.8 IS L, but what's that other one? It's some sort of 70-200 with a deranged lens hood... :?

Yeah, I just went through all the EF lenses in Canon's Museum website. It looks like they took a 70-200mm 2.8 texture, and pimped it out to make a bigger lens to save memory.

Still doesn't change the fact I'm jealous of the 70-200mm Frankenmonster.

Its pretty nice that they included the red line around the lens in the game too xD

Jep, that's what I thought, too.
I don't get what the black part on the lens hood is supposed to be. Looks like a second distance window.

Or abnormally large thumbs for that matter.
