Bride of Starbucks

Nikon may have beaten Canon in the race to release the world’s  first DSLR with HD video capture (the D90), but Canon was the first to have its own lovely lens mug. This, of course, infuriated a lot of Nikon shooters who’ve been feeling left out as they stare sullenly into their generic mugs.

Well, good news (I think)…. Nikon zoom lens cups have appeared for sale on eBay in two flavors: AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8 ED and AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II.


These will definitely become collector’s items as Nikon has not authorized this product and their trademark appears to have been kidnapped. Undoubtedly litigation is in preparation as I write this. In other words if this is your, uh, cup of tea, you’d better act fast. 

Can’t vouch for the quality of these items but the photos sure look nice.

As a Java-junkie I’m holding out for the 1200mm edition. Imagine the look on the barista’s face when I walk up to the counter and demand a “refill.”
