Making its stamp as the most expensive camera sold at auction.

Although modern day luxury products have proven to be the latest and greatest in the market for leading brands, it is now an early pioneer example of high-performance collectibles. For Lecker camera professionals, some of their earliest models are significant pieces of history in the world of photography. Leitz Photographica auction professionals are proud to showcase the sale of the most expensive camera sold at auction during the 40th Camera Auction. The new record-breaking camera takes the shape of a Leica 0-Series NO.105 ‘Oscar Bernak’, originally released in 1923 with only 23-unit estimated series counts.. Nearly a decade later, the historic Leica 0-Series NO.105 stands as one of about a dozen survivors. This particular NO.105 serial number is above all others due to its historical importance as the personal camera of Oscar Bernak, the inventor of Leica.
