Leif Engberg’s Leica MP-36 for auction on eBay

Can you believe it? Some people’s impudence is just beyond words! eBay seller photo-arsenal-worldwide have an MP-36 + Summicron 5cm 1:2 lens for auction on eBay, allegedly used by swedish photojournalist Leif Engberg to report on several international conflicts during the last century. An here it comes: For this bashed-up piece of glass and metal, they’re actually asking a whopping US-$ 108,001!

Seriously. I don’t see why anyone would pay that amount of money for a half-century old, bashed and battered camera, just because they say it’s been used by some famous photographer. You’d have to be totally out of your freaking mind.
