A 1923 Leica Is Now the Most Expensive Camera Ever

$2.95 million USD worth of kit.

By //Tech

At the recent Westlicht Camera Auction in Vienna, a super rare Leica O-Series produced in 1923 broke records to become the most expensive camera ever sold. The model is one of only 25 ever produced, which were created as test devices two years before the launch of the first official Leica release.

The camera sold for a fee of €2.4 million EUR (approx. $2.95 million USD) eclipsing the previous record, which had been set by another Leica O-Series back in 2012. The O-Series was believed to be purchased by a private collector based in Asia, with the record price being attributed to the condition that the camera has been kept in.

In related news,  Leica has recently unveiled its $15,000 USD “Stealth Edition” camera.
