Leitz Photographica Auction unveils lineup of rare Leica cameras


Leitz Photographica Auction (formerly known as WestLicht Photographica Auction) will be hosting their 34th auction on June 8. Here are some of the featured Leica products:

  • Leica MP-2
    • Estimated hammer price: 400,000–500,000 euros
    • This is the first M camera with an electric motor drive, produced in the late 1950s. It is considered to be one of the rarest and most unusual M cameras ever to have been offered for sale by auction.
  • Leica M3 No.700005
    • Estimated hammer price: 300,000–400,000 euros
    • The fifth Leica M camera ever made, and is probably in the best condition of any early camera of the series.
  • Leica 250 Reporter GG with a Leica-Motor MOOEV
    • Estimated hammer price: 300,000–400,000 euros
    • It is one of the rarest and most valuable cameras manufactured by Leitz/Leica, and it is estimated that only fifteen examples have survived until today. Most examples of this camera were delivered during World War II and were lost in the chaos of war. The camera offered here was delivered to Berlin in November 1942 and is in excellent condition with only minimal signs of wear.
