Canon love meet coffee love


I’ve seen a number of concepts for camera lens coffee mugs floating around the internet, but this spring Canon took the idea and made it a reality.

The Canon Limited Edition 70-200mm L-Series Coffee Cup was introduced at the XXI Winter Olympics in Vancouver this past March. When the mugs were handed out to photographers covering the event they became instant “must-have” items in the photography world. The few retailers offering them have already sold out of pre-orders and the mug’s popularity has spawned its own Facebook fan page. Rumor has it that Nikon isn’t far behind.

    This is a great idea! What better way to hide your brew from that certain someone that always seems to ‘accidentally’ drinks your coffee. No more with this baby. The only drawback is that if you actually own the lens and stick it in the dishwasher…ooops!

      Yup! They did a great job replicating it.
