The Leica T website was made temporarily live, clearly by mistake. It has since been taken down. We've archived quite a bit of it for you, which you can see down below... If you want all the specs - we have those too! Read more below for details and pictures!

The mystery item "Edition 100 Years of Leica" is described as a special anniversary edition by the WestLicht auction house in Vienna, and the sale is part of a larger auction - "100 rare treasures from every epoch of technical development of Leitz history." This item, Lot 100 - is billed as one of the auction highlights. It won't be cheap; the opening bid is €22,000 ($30,391 USD). WestLicht says, "The secret will be disclosed on 22nd May, one day before the auction starts." Should be interesting! Read more below for details!

In a report on BusinessPartner PBS called "Furniture for Generations" (in German) we get a bit of a peek inside the new Leitz Park headquarters in Wetzlar, which is set to open in about a month on May 23, 2014. More specifically, the choice of Leica Camera AG to outfit the new digs with Bosse Design furnishings (e.g. desks, chairs, cubicles, etc.). It should come as perhaps no surprise, Bosse Design is a "Made in Germany" solution and are quintessentially German in design; very modern. They're located in Höxter - a 2.5 hour drive north of Wetzlar. Read more below for details and translation.
