Tamarkin Photographica will hold an auction of rare cameras on January 28, and the item that has gotten the most attention is an original Leica Gun with 400mm Telyt lens. [2]

Writes Louis Ramirez of Gizmodo [3]:

While it looks like it can scare the pants off of the meanest DSLR out there, I can’t imagine you’d have much luck getting your subjects to sit still when shooting with it.

Tamarkin, based in New York, expects the camera to fetch from $35,000 to $65,000.

The auction will be held live and also on eBay Live Auctions. The auction catalog can be viewed on the Tamarkin Web site [4], at www.liveauctioneers.com [5], and at eBay Live Auctions.
