    Hello, my name is Sheikh Saud Bin Mohammed Al-Thani of Qatar and I just bought this lens for my Sony nex. Though it doesn't balance all too well tbh :biggrin: :biggrin:


    The world's most expensive camera lens

    Well it's obvious the Sheikh is a passionate street shooter. Albeit from the comfort of his couch 3 kms away.

    You would need an assistant just to carry the lens and run interference in case of attempted theft!!

    True saying applies - "More money than sense" and Leica must really love him
