Sooo… I was over at the Unique Photo blog and came across this image of the insanely large and even more insanely priced Leica 1600mm lens (2560mm on a camera with a 1.6x crop factor…just saying). According to the post, this behemoth of a lens is about four feet long with a 16.5 in. barrel diameter – WTH?! Some Sheikh over in Qatar dropped a measly TWO MILLION to have it made. Perhaps he wants to see the nose hairs of distant alien life forms. 🙂
If you’d like to read more about it just check out the blog post here: Ridiculous Lens of the Day: Leica APO-Telyt-R 1:5.6/1600mm Lens. After reading about it let me know what you think of this super huge lens below.
