I wonder where the other 11 are?

"A prototype Leica camera has sold for 2.16m euros (£1.74m), setting a new world record for a camera.

It was one of just 25 models created in 1923 as a prototype for the groundbreaking Leica A, which was the first commercially successful compact camera to use 35mm film.

Branded the "null-serie", or 0-Series, only 12 such models are known to have survived."

Wow, at that price, it makes their 50mm f.095 lens seem reasonable at $11,000
