I'd rather collect the work of a master photographer

I just read an interesting article on Peter Lik's alleged 6.5 million dollar photo. I would personally much rather spend money collecting the work of a respected master than that of Peter Lik. If you have that much money to spend, wouldn't it make sense to hire someone who has some knowledge of art and could better advice you? I would much rather own any photograph by Edward Weston, Richard Avedon, Stieglitz, Diane Arbus, Margaret Bourke-White, Cartier-Bresson, Imogen Cunningham, Ansel Adams, and countless other master photographers, than the best Peter Lik image there is out there. How about you? What are your thought on this. 

Have a great day everyone!
