Ouch, and I tought Leica lens caps were expensive :-)

Re: £1.7 million Leica!

Hmm ... well ....

but for real, if I got 1.7m sterling to spare, I might as well find better cause for the money. I am sure there is loads of charity out there needing the fund. And if I need to invest , there is probably far better choice too.

Camera collecting is a fine hobby, but like arts market these day, its more about prospecting.

Re: £1.7 million Leica!

Probably laundry of money.  Or maybe bidder thought currency was in Yen. lol  A new status symbol for an extremely wealthy person?

I wonder why the camera is not in Leica's collection?  Oh, right, there are 1.7 million reasons...
