Is there anyone on the list who buys Leicas to collect rather than to use? I
always think of them as tools to take pictures with and I can never
understand why black paint versions, first generation 35mm Summilux
Asphericals etc go for so much more  money.  

I started collecting Minox 8x11s but I use them all and I'd never dream of
paying over the odds for a chrome version for example.
