Leica 0 Series reissue equipped with Leitz Anastigmat 50mm f/3.5 lens. The camera also comes with the original box, leather case and manual! These were released in the year 2000 and only 2000 units were made making this camera very rare!
Originally produced in only small numbers in the early 1920s, the O series of cameras is often regarded as the basis for the modern-day 35mm camera! This version, released in 2000, is a working replica of the original 1923 camera. Image quality is simply superb thanks to the 50mm Anastigmat ƒ3.5 lens, based on the classic computation by Professor Max Bereck in 1920, which was redesigned with the aid of modern computer techniques!
