Camera auction

For anyone who lives within driving distance of Southwest Ohio and has next Monday (Feb 20, 2017) off, there will be an auction at the Miami County Fairgrounds in Troy, Ohio that will include a number of old, mostly German, cameras. No Leicas , but a number of Voightlanders, Zeiss Ikons, Exactas, plus other cameras by Kodak, Argus, Canon, Yashica, Minolta, and other manufactures.

For more information, check out:


If you see something interesting but can't be there, contact the auctioneer. If I am not mistaken, it is possible to place a bid before the auction or bid by phone during the auction.

I will be there, possibly with a Leica iii around my neck.
Mike B.

Good luck, take $35 and you could probably buy 3 of them! I went to an estate sale the other week of a serious photographer and astronomy buff. Dozens of medium format rangefinders including Bessas. None sold. They lowered their prices the next week, none sold. I guess they pitched them in the dumpster, there were like 4 bookshelves full, with 20 cameras per shelf. No demand anymore, unless it's VERY high end.

I know the seller. Some of this stuff came from my store and other pieces came from BK Photo in Troy. There may be a few interesting items in the Voigtlander/Exakta pile.
Fuji X Pro 1,XT 1and XF1 cameras and lenses.
Sony RX1
Leica M6 with black Wetzlar 50mm
A pair of Barnack Anniversary cameras
Who knows how many others
