Leitz Photographica Classic Leica Auction

There’s no doubt that Leica is one of the world’s most respected camera manufacturers, and in order to garner such a title, they’ve built innovative, high-quality photographic systems for well over a century. In each era, the German company has continuously set the bar for current systems — and now, thanks to the Leitz Photographica Auction, you too can own an important piece of the medium’s history.

The Leitz Photographica Auction is set to take place in Wetzlar, Germany, and will feature a handful of the manufacturer’s most iconic platforms, from the UW and MP2, all the way to unabated classics like the M3 Chrome and 250 GG Reporter. For those who aren’t well versed in Leica’s preliminary offerings, the MP2 is characterized as the German manufacturer’s first M camera to ever house an electric motor drive. The M3 Chrome, on the other hand, is an impeccably kept variant of the company’s fifth photographic device and boasts a near-perfect condition. The UW, Leica’s premier underwater housing, is an exceptionally rare piece of photographic history — sporting a rare red paint and coming to fruition after receiving a request for a water-tight exoskeleton from the U.S. Army. Perhaps the most interesting offering of the bunch, the 250 GG Reporter, is an ultra-rare platform who’s lineage dates back as far as WWII and boasts Leica’s Motor MOOEV — only 15 are said to exist today. If you’re interested, be sure to head over to Leitz’s site. As with most of Leica’s gear, you can expect to pay a high premium.
