Ouch! Football Player Falls On Sideline And Destroys A Canon L Telephoto Lens

That’s what you might call bad luck. For the Photographer. The player landed on top of what looks to be either a Canon EF 500mm f/4L or an EF 400mm f/2.8L lens mounted on a Canon EOS-1D X. The photographer is ok, the lens broken in 2 parts.
