About us

We, the company Leica Camera Classics GmbH, FN 100602 w, Westbahnstraße 40, 1070 Vienna, are authorised dealers of Leica Camera AG. We sell used cameras and collectibles (“Vintage”), especially of the Leica brand, but also models of other manufacturers.  

Our services 

Our Vintagecollection includes used cameras and accessories of high quality.  

Part of our service to our customers is using our expertise in handling high-quality cameras of any year of manufacture in order to carefully choose and verify the Vintagemodels in our collection.

Our Vintage models are only included in our collection after having been checked in a verification process regarding visual appearance, technical functioning capacity and wear or damage. The results of the verification process are provided in the product descriptions of the Vintagemodels. However, we hereby expressly mention that we can only verify the technical functional capacity of our Vintage models to the extent that is possible without intervention in the mechanics.

9.1.     Reclamations about the assertion of the legal right of guarantee can be addressed to us at Leica Camera Classics GmbH, Westbahnstraße 40, 1070 Wien, Austria, or by e-mail to orders@leicashop.com.

We provide guarantee concerning our Vintagemodels, in accordance with the legal provisions, to the following extent:

9.2.     Each Vintagemodel is subject to a verification process conducted by our employees, with the help of defined verification steps and regarding its individual age and use-dependent technical functionality as well as its visual appearance. We provide the result of the verification process in the product description. Any limited technical functionality, wear or damage due to age or use described in the product descriptions of the individual Vintagemodels is considered a contractual characteristic and therefore not as a defect. Only deviations from this upon handover are considered defects.

9.3.     We are not liable for defects that are not possible for us to detect with the verification methods available to us.

9.4.     We hereby indicate that we can only verify the technical functionality of the models to the extent that is possible without intervention in the mechanics. We therefore do not guarantee wear parts or damaging individual parts in the mechanics that are not detectable without such intervention.

9.5.     We guarantee the correctness of the information we provide concerning manufacturer, model, type and serial number.

9.6.     We cannot conclusively verify the ownership histories of our Vintagemodels and therefore do not provide any guarantee or accept any liability concerning this point. 

10. Damage compensation 

10.1.   We are liable in accordance with the applicable damage compensation legal provisions with the following limitation: 

10.2.   Our liability for property damage is limited to intentional and grossly negligent causes of damage.

10.3.   Liability for loss of profit or unforeseeable damage is generally excluded, if such an exclusion of liability can be reliably agreed upon.

10.4.   Any other liability is excluded.


11. Right of withdrawal

11.1.   For orders on the Webshop, customers, who are consumers in the sense of the Austrian Consumer Protection Law (KSchG), have the right to withdraw from the contract within a withdrawal period of 14 (fourteen) days, with no justification required (§ 11 of the Austrian Law of Distance Selling and Off-Premises Contracts  – FAGG). 

11.2.   The withdrawal period begins on the day on which the consumer obtains ownership of the ordered model; in case of a single order of several models that are delivered separately or in several partial deliveries, on the day on which the consumer obtains ownership of the last model or the last partial delivery.

11.3.   This period is extended by 12 (twelve) months if we have not fulfilled our duty of information. If we rectify the fulfilment of the duty of information within 12 (twelve) months after the beginning of the period, the period ends 14 (fourteen) days after the consumer receives the information. 

11.4.   The consumer exercises their right of withdrawal by sending a clearly formulated declaration of their decision to withdraw from the contract (with provision of their name, their address, the purchased object, the order date and the delivery date), by post to Leica Camera Classics GmbH, Westbahnstraße 40, 1070 Wien, Austria, or by e-mail to orders@leicashop.com. To do so, the consumer can, but is not obliged to, use the “withdrawal form model” that can be found in the Webshop at www.leicashop.com. The withdrawal period is considered observed as long as the consumer sends the declaration within the period. 

11.5.   The withdrawal cancels the contract. The consumer is to return already received models to us, at their own cost, at the latest within 14 (fourteen) days as of our reception of the withdrawal declaration. The return period is considered observed as long as the consumer sends the model within the period. 

11.6.   The consumer is only to pay for a loss of value of the model if this can be traced back to an action that is not necessary for a proper verification of the quality, properties or functioning of the model. 

11.7.   In case of withdrawal, we shall pay all the payments received from the consumer back to the consumer, including shipping costs, at the latest within 14 (fourteen) days after we receive the withdrawal declaration of the consumer. For the reimbursement, we use the same payment method that the consumer used for the original transaction, unless otherwise agreed in the individual case. We do not charge any supplementary fee for the reimbursement. We are entitled to refuse the reimbursement until we have received the model or have the proof of the return of the model to us.

11.8.   This information about the right of withdrawal and the “Withdrawal form model” are available in the Webshop at www.leicashop.com.

12.Applicable law and place of jurisdiction 

12.1.   Austrian law applies to all contracts concluded by us, with exclusion of the UN purchasing law and Austrian and European law rules, unless binding consumer protection provisions of the country of residence of a customer who is a consumer are to be applied.

12.2.   For rulings on disputes arising from or in the context of contracts concluded with us, the competent court of the registered address of our company is locally competent, unless the courts of the country of residence of a customer who is a consumer are competent according to binding provisions.




13. Severability clause

13.1.   If a provision of these Sales Conditions is or becomes fully or partially invalid, the validity of all the remaining provisions of these Sales Conditions or of the purchase contracts that they underlie remains unaffected. The invalid provision is to be replaced with a legally valid provision that comes as close as possible to the economic purpose pursued by the invalid provision as is legally possible.
