Not Luftwaffe but a nice photo. Sold as 1939.11.21 Lioré Olivier LeO C-30. I believe some of them were captured by the Germans in 1940?

"All 59 LeO C-30S, C-301, C-302 [painted and marked as in the above photo] were destroyed or captured during the German invasion of May-June 1940."
So, yes, some may have been captured. But then the C-30 is not realy new for the germans, I don't know, if it would be of that much value and use for the germans.
I also seem to remember seeing a photo of a (german captured?),
