    Just downloaded the big image of the lens, and indeed the seal says "State of Qatar."
    Hello David,

    I think you have that one right, and there is good reason to believe that we might now have a good idea of who is the new owner. Around 2002/3 time there was a special commissioned Leica M7 Titanium with five lenses, different in that everything was made from Titanium. There was a nice article about this camera in LFI 6/2003. The new owner of that system is His Excellence Sheikh Saoud Bin Mohammed Bin Ali al-Thani, founding Chairman of the Qatar National Council for Culture, Arts & Heritage. Seems to me he would be the best guess for owning that Zeiss monster lens.

    Ciao!
