I just came across this lens and was blown away by the price...a whopping $16,995.00. What in the world makes this lens cost so much? Is this for real?

VEARY likely because there are enough that will pay MUCH more for a new one.

Maybe not your typical E-Bay'er but a smart pro with need and no one to charge it off to should be looking at all possibilities .

A very specialized, low demand, expensive to produce lens. Likely hand ground optics too.
