More About Leica
Leica started out as Leitz Optics, and originally was primarily a manufacturer of high quality binoculars and other ranged optical instruments, but it was in 1913 that engineer Oskar Barnack created the world's first practical 35mm camera, which was to be used for landscape photography. The Leica Camera used smaller film than other cameras at the time, so better lenses were needed to get a good picture. Fortunately, Leica already excelled at producing high quality lenses for their binoculars, so they were able to develop a number of different camera lenses, which helped make the Leica the favorite camera of reporters and adventurers in need of a portable and reliable camera. Leica's innovative spirit, premium quality and legendary class is found in every item they offer, so you know you're getting the best from every image, every time.
