The most expensive lens in the world (it’s a Leica of course)

I think this is the most expensive lens in the world: the LEICA APO-TELYT-R 1:5.6/1600mm is worth 16 million HKD (2,064,489 USD) - yes you read this right 2 million US dollars! Anyone has that thing? I would like to see some test shots :-)

    It was made for some african prince i think (worth miillionns) who came to leica for a costom telephoto lens. this is what he got. there are only 2 in the world. his and this one displayed in the leica factory in germany. its connected to an r8 that you can look through. too bad its fixed to look at bushes outside. : /. I doubt the price has a flickr :P

    Thanks for the info – this explains why I could not find any info online. I guess I will not be getting any test shots any time soon…

    Well if it’s a standard leica mount (as will be the case) I could get a cheap 2X conveter of ebay and make it even better!!!! LOL
