    Yep, this. But maybe an MP, instead of the M7...or one of those titanium M6's. No, one of those Ferrari M6's...
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    Same for me. Goodbye expensive lab that makes prints digitally. Hello E6 & BW
    Plus a pair of rolleiflexes, a rolleiflex 2.8 Xenotar without meter, and a 4.0 FW. And at last, a tachihara 4x5 kit. with normal and wide lens.

    And some dark skies to go with, please.
    That is one sweet telescope! If I owned one I probably wouldn't find time to photograph with it as I'd simply be looking through it, especially if it did come with nice dark skies!

    I mean, you did say price no object?
    Yes, price is no object, and the point is something worth the money. To me, that's the real way to show off anyway... if you must show off, have some class. i.e., I'd have the Aston-Martin DB-5, NOT the Lamborghini.

    Probably the exceedingly rare Nikkor 1200-1700mm zoom... $75K in 2000, who knows how much it would be today. Either that, or the Reflex-Nikkor 2000mm.

    Also, it makes them more visible at the edge of sports events.
    But does it help them get interest from the fairer sex? That's what I want to know. I keep hoping that my equipment will turn out to be a babe magnet, but apparently I'm using the wrong stuff.

    If I had to pick a bling lens for my Nikon, I'd go for the 6mm f/2.8. You didn't mount the lens on the camera, you mounted the camera on the lens!

    Lenses of unusual size? I doubt they really exist.

    Canon has a few telephoto lenses making use of diffractive optics. They're pretty compact considering their focal lengths.

    I was just paraphrasing "The Princess Bride" in the hopes that a lens of unusual size might appear out of thin air...

    Nevermind.

    A Leica M7! I would't use it as bling. I think that it would be a great tool! I have read so much great stuff about them. They seem to put out some extremely sharp photos too.
