The most expensive Leica camera ever was sold during the last Westlicht auction

The last Westlicht auction is over: the Leica 250 “Reporter” sold for 180,000EUR and the experimental Leica MP2 camera sold for a whopping 402,000 EUR (around 537,000USD)! The initial expected price was between EUR 150000-180000 and for now this is the most expensive Leica camera ever sold. From the descriptions:

“The MP-2 was the first experimental M cameras with electric motor drive built in the late 1950′s, only 6 cameras were produced in black paint finish, only 4 are known to exist”

The next Westlicht auction will take place on May 28th, 2011.
