Sports Illustrated Photographer David Liam KyleSports Illustrated photographer David Liam Kyle with Canon 1200mm lens ready for Cleveland Indians game at Jacobs Field. Cleveland, OH 4/2/1996. This photo popped up on Getty Images recently. Old photo of myself while on assignment for Sports Illustrated photographing Indians game in 1996 with a Canon 1200mm F5.6 lens. Supposedly only twenty 1200mm lenses were ever actually built. Of course this lens was owned by Sports Illustrated and was listed for sale by B&H for $180,000.00 in 2015.
