The 2013 WestLcht Camera Auction is coming up and they have some really awesome historical camera bodies that will be up for auction this year on November 23rd, 2013.

Only 19 of these very special cameras were made for NASA around 1986 and some were lost in space making this an incredibly rare camera. Space Shuttle' version of F3 with magazine back for 250 exposures combined with motor drive , Nikkor 1.4/35mm, different details modified for use in outer space, only approx. That one is expected to come in between 50,000 and 60,000 Euros.

And the most expensive camera on the list of this year is the 1,000,000th Leica. This famous camera, the 'One Millionth Leica', was presented to Dr. Ludwig Leitz by Willi Stein, the 'Father' of the Leica M3, in fine original condition, with matching and mint CF Summicron 2/50mm, ex. Leitz Museum (with original yellow museum sticker 'M 964' on base plate), ex Surat Collection - the camera is listed as one of the few official presentation cameras, no. 1.000.001 was given to Alfred Eisenstaedt. This camera has a whopping opening bid of 200,000 Euros, and it’s estimated to bring in as much as half-a-million Euros.
