In reference to my recent post about the new Nikon Replica Lens Mug with Zoom capability that I received, here's some images. The details on these replicas are incredible. Also there's some images of my other Canon Replica Lens mugs. The 24-105mm Lens mug you see in the gallery is the old one. The new Canon 24-105mm F/4 Replica Lens mug now has a stainless steel insert. Images were shot in my Product Cocoon with a Canon 580 EX II speedlight on each side triggered by my Canon ST-E2 transmitter. Images are a bit underexposed, but it's about midnight, and hopefully these should be good enough to give you an idea of the quality and detail of the Nikon 24-70mm Replica Zoom Lens Coffee Mug with Stainless Steel insert
I've been posting about these for a long time. I went through hurdles to find out about getting these things over to the US, but found out that the Manufacturer can't get them over due to a contract with Canon. Yes, I had a friend in China who talked to the owner 'in person'. In fact I had 2 people talk to the owner 'in person'. Well they did show up on the black market of eBay and other websites.
I wanted to do something nice for Canonholics out there and took the plunge purchasing the Canon L Lens mug from CanonMugs.com. They run a bit high, but if you gotta have it, you gotta have it. Most of the concern was not the high $45.00 dollar / item price, but was it legit? Purchasing these items come from oversears and it's always buyer beware. Even eBay sellers who are auctioning are just recently registered members with very little feedback. So for the sake of the Cheesycam readers who really wanted to order these things, I can attest that I've received my set of 2 mugs (kinda worried for a while).
If you're interested in grabbing one of your own, check out CanonMugs.com. It's real....they are very real..and they walk amongst us. Well mostly at Starbucks at least. Later, i'm going to Starbucks to get my Canon L lens mugs filled!
