When Oskar Barnack conceived and maufactured the first 35mm rangefinder camera in 1925 at Ernst Leitz, the Leica (Leitz Camera) cult status was born. Leica cameras were copied by most other camera manufacturers, but Leica's superiority in both optics and engineering prevailed for a long time.

Today, Leica has partnered with consumer electronics giant Panasonic to produce digital cameras. The partners complement each other ideally with their different expertise: Panasonic contributes the electronics know-how and Leica the optics know-how.

A friend of my father had taught himself photography and had achieved some fame, especially with landscape photography. He taught me how to develop and print in B&W and helped me with my first compact 35mm film camera purchase when I left for the US [heading to UT@Austin].

I also distinctly remember him trading his two Nikon F[?] SLRs for a Leica R[?]. He proudly showed us his new camera and promptly left for China on assignment. The pictures he brought back were widely exhibited and published. Seeing these beautiful pictures, it was only at that time that the Leica legend took hold in my mind.
