You're right.   No way to spend money like that and only get 1600mm.

It shoulda be a nice cool 2500mm lens for that kinda dough. ;)

Wow, but let's face it. Him buying that is similar to most of us lot buying a coffee! It won't even have caused a bump in his financial statements. Wonder what he uses it for?!

Novelty's probably worn off and he just hasn't got round to eBaying it yet.

[some people don't know how to spend their money!

Apparently he does know how to spend his money.... of all the people, we as photo enthusiast can appreciate what someone will do for the love of a hobby... 

But why the Leica? Was the Zeiss giving him too much CA?  :P

Just think of the R&D at Leica this lens generated. And paid for by someone else too. Result for them.


Expect to see something similar in the future.
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

there are limits for it. i love photography but the money it takes for a proper lens.. and then you have people not so creative but loads of money that don't use their gadget to the maximum.. pretty sure a creative photography student that cant even afford a dSLR would do better shots than this sheik..
