New: Leica M6 Set “Leitz Auction”, black paint finish

Wetzlar, 17th August 2023. Leica cameras and lenses stand for outstanding, “Made in Germany” quality. These handcrafted, precision optical tools have had a major impact on the world of photography for more than 100 years.

Every year, some of these masterworks, both cameras and lenses, make it to the stage at the Leitz Photographica Auction to be sold to the highest bidder. Last year, the auction celebrated its 20th anniversary and announced an exclusive special edition. Together with Leica Camera AG, Leitz Photographica Auction developed this extraordinary set that is now available for purchase: the Leica M6 Set “Leitz Auction” comes with a Leica M6 and the Noctilux-M 50 f/1.2 ASPH., both in a glossy black paint finish.

The Leitz Photographica Auction is one of the world’s most renowned auctions of vintage cameras, lenses and other interesting accessories. The M6 Set “Leitz Auction” is appropriately festive in commemoration of the anniversary: with a glossy black paint finish, the Leitz logo made of solid gold – specially prepared by a goldsmith in Wetzlar, Germany – and exclusive real wood armouring made of walnut veneer. The noble design is exquisitely rounded off by engravings in gold and red.

The Leica M6 Set “Leitz Auction” is limited to 20 copies. In addition to the camera and the popular Noctilux-M 50 f/1.2 ASPH. lens, it also includes a lens cap, body cap and lens hood all in a glossy black paint finish, along with a custom-made strap made of smooth black leather and a certificate of authenticity. The set’s elegant packaging with a golden Leitz logo adds an extra touch of excitement to this extraordinary and rare camera set.

The Leica M6 Set “Leitz Auction” with Noctilux-M 50 f/1.2 ASPH. will be available exclusively through Leica Camera Classics in Vienna from 17th August 2023. The recommended retail price is € 25,980.00 including VAT.
