For those who are curious, "Magic Drainpipe" refers to this lens: EF 80-200mm f/2.8L

I just recently sold one on eBay. It is an absolutely fantastic lens that is so very sharp even wide open. It's also more discreet as it is black rather than the eye-catching light-grey of modern big lenses from Canon. However I found that I used it very rarely mostly because what we regularly film rarely requires a telephoto. The fact that it lacked IS would be a drawback for video work. It really is a lovely lens for photos though.
