World's most expensive Leica

Rare Leica Camera Auctioned for $620K

An extremely rare Leica camera was sold at auction by Bonhams in Hong Kong, for approximately $620,000 on Nov. 22, 2013. The gold-plated Leica Luxus II, with a crocodile-skin case, dates back to 1932. According to Leica's records, only four of its kind ever made and the whereabouts of the other three is unknown.

This or close to a hundred D5's. I know which I would buy. Sorry, Leica, but at least if I buy the Nikons at least I can import them without breaching untold numbers of laws against animal-skin trafficking.

You'd think they could've polished it a bit before the auction.
