The 1958 Leica M2 is the most expensive vintage camera to be auctioned


Leica is known for its range of excellent cameras. Right from S2 DSLR and its lens system, to the MP, M7, M8 and M9 along with its several variants the cameras have been a show stealer. So when the vintage 1958-MP2 was presented as the highlight of a camera auction at the Westlicht gallery, Vienna the proceeding went into a bidding frenzy. With a starting bid of €80,000 ($106,690) these one of just six extremely rare collectibles earned a staggering €402,000 ($536,115), thanks to an Asian collector who also now owns the most expensive Lecia camera auctioned ever.
