Forget those fake plastic (but wildly popular) mugs that look like Canon lenses, there’s a one of a kind custom lens cup made from a real $1,300 Canon 300mm f/4 L lens being auctioned on eBay. Kai over at DigitalRev had an accident while shooting a video about the lens and, instead of tossing it out, they decided to convert it into a cup and auction it off for charity (all proceeds will go to help victims of the recent Australian flooding).
Along with some news of the collectible 70-200mm Canon cup we posted yesterday, we mentioned that DSLR News Shooter was giving away a 24-105mm look-alike cup that we hadn’t seen before.
Turns out the cup was manufactured by some company in Hong Kong, China rather than Canon. It’s probably not legit, but seems to be a fantastic replica of the actual lens. We’re not sure how long this is going to be available, but you can head on over to eBay and buy yours for $40 ($24.99 plus $15 shipping):
