Leica prototype sets new world record: Leica 0-series no.105 sold for € 14.4 million The serial production of the Leitz Camera, or Leica for short, the world's first 35mm camera, is considered a milestone in modern photography. 


Before the first cameras were available in the mid-1920s, Ernst Leitz produced around 23 models of the prototype 0 series in 1923 and 1924. One of these rare cameras – the 0-series no. 105 – has now been sold at the 40th Leitz Photographica Auction for a price of € 14.4 million including buyers' premium. The 105 has thus broken the world record for the most expensive camera of all time.
