125 years are commonly commemorated in Germany and Switzerland, especially 
by corporate companies and associations. Because the next "real" 
commemoration would be after 200 years, so it makes one party more inbetween.

I dont think many of our list will buy this camera, but it's those 
collectors that keep Leica alive. For me, I would love to have this camera. 
Not for the display-case, but for shooting, and scratch & dent it with a 
pleasure (except the glass of course).

And I wouldn't care even if they sell a 157 years commemoration camera for 
Oscar Barnacks mother in law. As long as some fools buy it...
