What's it like to buy a $ 9000 Leica Summicron lens ?

I know that a few of you folks on this forum have a little bit of extra pocket change  and want  the best Lecia glass.

What is the process  like of buying a small rangefinder lens which cost almost 5 figures ?

do you ponder the purchase for years?

do you tell anyone ,,, or is it so inconceivable a purchase for a non Leica user that you keep it secret ?

do you take it with you on your travels or is a cause of worry like wearing a Rolex in poor third world countries ?

if you have 3 such lens we are now talking 30 grand in lens plus camera = about 40 grand in a small camera bag

or do you only ever travel with one - just in case

do you feel that they are worth the money ?

I am interested in any and all comments
