Leica 0-Series No.105


The Leitz Photographica Auction House will be holding its 40th auction where a rare Leica 0-Series owned by Oskar Barnack could break current world records.

The Leica 0-Series No.105 was produced in 1923 and was a personal camera of Oskar Barnack. Approximately 20 examples of the 0-Series were manufactured as prototypes before the original Leitz 35mm camera was launched in the mid-1920s - only a dozen are estimated to still be in existence today.

If you fancy adding a bit of history to your camera collection you'll need quite a bit of cash as starting bids for the camera are 1 million Euros with the camera expected to sell for somewhere between 2-3 million Euros...

Another Leica 0 -Series camera produced in 1923 was a sensational highlight at the Leitz Photographica auction in 2018 where the camera achieved a record-breaking hammer price of 2.4 million euros and still holds the record for the highest price ever paid for a camera sold by auction.

If you want to see if this record will be broken in the latest auction, you can watch events unfold over on YouTube (a link will appear on the auction website shortly before the event begins).

The 40th Leitz Photographica Auction will be held at Leitz Park, Wetzlar, Germany at 10am GMT on 11 June 2022.
