Everyone has a smartphone in their hand today with good camera features that can take good and clear photos even at night and get high quality 4K video. High technology can take amazing photos of these. But professional photography is a little different. The requirements for professional photographers are also somewhat complex. They are always looking for the best equipment for the best results. They also prefer to use a lens that is more compatible with the distance and size of the subject being photographed. But their enemy has always been the high cost of professional camera lenses. Take a look at the lenses below, they are the most expensive camera lenses currently manufactured in the world.
Laika (Leica ) 50mm f / .95 – Rs 2,328,477.77 (£ 98,00.00)

The Lyca 50mm f / .95 comes in five batches with eight different elements and has 5 semi-diffusion lenses that can limit color errors. The lens also has two asbestos surfaces, with 6-bit encoding that allows close-up functionality and transmit trans-data to digital M cameras.

Sigma’s APO 200-500mm F2.8 / 400-1000mm F5.6 EX DG is the first ultrasonic telephoto lens with an aperture of 500 mm F2.8. When fitted with a specially designed extender, the 400-1000mm F5.5 becomes an ultra telephoto lens. It has ELD (abnormally low diffusion) and SLD (special low diffusion) glasses for maximum correction of distortions. This lens has a great ability to track the subjects of fast moving nature and the focus of sports and fast moving objects such as surfing, polo and football.
Canon (Canon ) 5200mm f / 14 mirror lenses – Rs 8,355,713.46 (£ 35,171.00)

Zeiss Apo Sonnar T 1700mm f / 4 Rs 18,568,062.17+ (£ 78,150.05+)
This lens is the result of an attempt by optometrists at Carl Size in 2006 to produce the best lens in the world. This Hazelblad is designed to be used with a 6×6 medium sized camera. This incredible lens weighs less than 256 kilograms, so it goes without saying that this is not a traditional camera lens.
Carl Size is a leading manufacturer of camera lenses, and they continue to collaborate with Sony and Nikon to produce lenses for mobile phones and digital cameras. Their experience in manufacturing large telescopes and instruments for astronomy led them to produce a camera lens with a complete focusing mechanism. Due to the size of the elements, this lens is equipped with an extremely powerful focusing motor. A special LCD monitor is built into the rear end of the lens to display the focal length, aperture, etc. No clear price has been announced, but there are hints of a price of at least a few million euros. However, the lens is said to have been made by an anonymous wealthy man from Qatar who enjoys wildlife photography.

Apart from the creators of this lens at Laika, only the Sheikh of Qatar, Saud bin Mohammed Al Thani, the only owner of the lens in the world knows the functionality and technical details of this lens. That’s because Laika made the only camera lens of its kind ever made for him. The amount paid for it was 1, 1,563,003.03. A model here is housed at Laika headquarters in Germany.

Carl Zeiss (Carl Zeiss ) 50mm Planet F / 0.7 – Rs 4,289,286,848.93 (£ 18,052,455.44 +)
This unusual lens is one of the largest lens openings in photographic history and was created specifically for NASA’s Apollo lunar program to photograph the farthest side of the moon. The Carl Size 50mm Planar F / 0.7 dates back to the 1960s and produced only ten lenses.
One was kept at Carl Size and the other six were sold to NASA, and the famous film director Stanley Kubrick bought and used the remaining three during the filming of his Barry Lyndon movie. The incredible quality of the lens allowed them to shoot scenes with the same light coming from the candles, and according to the designer, with the help of the lens, they can shoot scenes in complete darkness. The lens is estimated to be worth more than $ 23 million, making it the most expensive camera lens in the world so far in terms of inflation.
