Why We Love These Relics

Some buy Leica cameras for their build and quality... Others, for their history. Such is the case in this BBC story, called "Why we love these relics." Naturally, the ultra rare Leica Luxus II from 1932 that recently sold for $1.6M USD at auction was mentioned. Also mentioned (and pictured above) is the 1937 Leica III that captured the iconic "Raising a flag over the Reichstag" photograph in 1945. Lovely cameras and their history; well worth a read.
