A Leica for 1€

    Unfortunately I fear it may be a fake. The serial number on the lens is all wrong and I've never heard of a Leica Turbo-Diesel, which is what it appears to proclaim itself to be. On the other hand it was only 1€ at a vide-grenier last year.

    Cheers,

    Looking at the 'lens' unit, I think you are mistaken. It appears to be a Summilux f1.4 135mm, not 35mm. As such it is clearly a prototype/mock-up of an unreleased model, and should be cherished as such. A bloke I know in the collectibles business says to insure it for £75,000.
