I found the owner on Twitter and asked him to send along some pictures.   With 1.5Million followers I doubt he'll reply but if he does, I'll certainly share it with everyone.

I am wondering whether Leitax can convert this to Nikon mount.

Cheers,

I'm sure you can get an adaptor, Bernard!

For me, no.  Looks too long, too heavy and too awkward for me and the style of photography I do, so it has little value to me, no matter the price.

Then there is one location in Japan where I would want to fix it permanently...

It would have to be taken there by helicopter and we would have to build a building for that purpose... but the cost thereof would be small compared to the lens itself. :)

Cheers,
Bernard

You mean if I had 2 million to flush down the toilet? Sure.  If my net worth was 2 million? Nope. 20 million?  Still nope.

But of course! And then I would sell it on ebay. There's always some nut ready to pay more than I bought it for.

Not a chance. But I would buy  a Pentax 67 body with a  full frame sensor.

I'll never prefer buying any such thing. No matter how much money do I have, Just a lens for 2 million?

Look at it this way. If you took a million shots with the lens, then the price per shot would be only 2 dollars, less than a sheet of printing paper. It's a bargain!
