Anyone used a LEICA 1:5.6/1600mm lens?

Thinking of picking up this 1600mm lens before my return to Tanzania.

I just wished it came in black.

Anyone here with insight about its speed in low light?

You have to be kidding, right!? At USD$2,000,000+...?!!! But worth every penny I'm sure.

Do you think they'll throw in a monopod, I'm pretty sure you'd need one.
