I am thinking....... if I sell all my Leica gear and my left kidney I may be able to buy this monster. I did not know this lens existed.

Nice... here is my copy as I use it in hides.
A very good lens. Each time I have upgrade my camera (K5, K5iis, K3) the resolution of images raised, meaning that this lens is largely capable to take benefit of the 24 Mpix sensor

How much does the total set up weights (lens plus tripod head, kimbal, etc.), the forum review says that the lens alone weights 6.8 kilograms. Also, you are keeping the additional gear, are you moving to a larger lens, or other brand?
