Yep, this. But maybe an MP, instead of the M7...or one of those titanium M6's. No, one of those Ferrari M6's...

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!
And some dark skies to go with, please.
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.
I mean, you did say price no object?

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.

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.

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.
