Leica makes the world’s most expensive lens at $2mn


A nature or sports photographer among other things requires a lens with higher focal length in comparison to those making their living through commercial product, food or fashion portraits. Well, if you can afford to buy it then you can order a 1600mm f/5.6 Leica Lens for $2mn. The focal length on offer with this lens is twice that of the biggest Nikon lens at 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR super-telephoto lens.
