Default Speculation

Is there an adapter that can interface my Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6 L USM Lens to a Hasselblad H4D-60 camera? (So I can be prepared when I win the lottery)....

No.

Canon image circles are 35mm-ish, H4D sensor is much bigger.

You can go the other way round though, there are adapters to seat Hasselblad lenses on the EF mount.

But you could get one of these Zeiss 1700mm f4 lenses for the Hasselblad H4D....

More info:

Weighs 256kg!! Not a walk-around lens. Only hand-holdable by superman.

Great lens system but only has 15 optical elements, I presently require a little bit more power, but if I get it, my wife has reservations on her being able to carry it to the soccer games. Even more important, she refuses to give me permission to upgrade my current tripod as it would include the purchase of a new front end loader.

Well, if you do win big on the lottery then you can buy some land, install the lens, build a football pitch nearby. Ideally you will need some rail tracks. Like the stuff you use to shoot movies.

I'm disappointed in how much thought you're willing to commit to this. If you aren't serious about your photography, you will never improve!
