Quick News – You may recall about this time last year, a 1923 Leica O-Series, which happened to be one of only twelve in existence, set a world record for the most expensive camera at the 2011 WestLicht Photographica Auction held in Veinna, Austria. Fast forward nearly 365-days later, and the very same model (different serial number) which set the previous world record has done it again, fetching a new record-breaking total of $2.79 million at this year’s WestLicht auction.
