Called the Canon EF Lens Collector Cup, it resembles an EF 70-200mm f/4L lens. And it's coming to a photo store near you."</em><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1269633061.usr19541.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>Here is a novelty item that Rob Galbraith, Digital Photography Insights, has picked up on. He provides several photographs on his web site, along with links to a retail outlet, a YouTube video, and even a <a href="http://www.facebook.com/canonlensthermos#!/canonlensthermos" target="_blank">Facebook</a> fan page! Alas, the outlet he links to, <a href="http://www.thecamerastore.com/products/bags-cases/accessories/photo-apparel/canon-limited-edition-70-200mm-l-series-coffee-cup" target="_blank">The Camera Store</a>, sold out their inventory in a single day, and it does not appear to be in stock elsewhere either. However, if this looks like something you would enjoy owning, feel free to join the scintillating discussion on Facebook, where various alternatives are mentioned!&nbsp; (If you have not already guessed, the real Canon EF 70-200mm Lens is pictured on the right above, with the Collector Cup shown on the left.)&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p>

I so wanted one of these. I think I missed buying one by a couple hours at the site you linked a few weeks ago...too slow on the draw. Now they are on Ebay for >$175. That, my friend, is nutty.
