Leica Press Release

Leica Cameras are delighted to announce a record auction result for a unique piece, Leica 0-series no. 122, which fetched an incredible €2.4 million (over £2.1 million) during the 32nd WestLicht Camera Auction in Vienna last weekend.

The camera is part of a series of only 25 prototypes which were manufactured in 1923, two years before the famous German brand was launched, to test the market. This Leica 0-series is an incredibly rare piece of camera history; all parts including the paintwork are original, with the matching lens cover and the original folding finder. The camera also comes complete with a matching lens cover and the original folding finder, the unique film spool and take-up spool.

The camera was bought by a private collector from Asia and is believed to be the most expensive historic camera auctioned to date.
