    Default I thought I might upgrade my current lens to one of these!

    Im a little tired of my 100-400mm Canon lens and might upgrade - found this lens on the web and might slip down to my local camera store and order one in the morning !!! Its only ( wait for it) 2 million dollars US!!! The most expensive camera lens on the planet - the LeicaTelyt 1600mm f/5.6!!! :P :P :P :P

    cheers

    I bet I could handhold that :roll:
    Impressive, by anyone's measure. I wonder how much it weighs?

    Don't forget to put a little money aside for all those physiotherapist bills. Apart from breaking the bank, this lens will bust your back. I'm with Geoff - should've gone into real estate.........
