Hard to believe it's been three years already - time sure does fly! Seems like only yesterday that we celebrated our second birthday. It's been a tremendous amount of fun, and we've met a lot of great people along the way! It's been a big year, too. From scooping to reporting on the new Leica T system, introducing the world's first T forum to covering 100 years of Leica photography, writing a couple of new articles and numerous new reviews of great products from FLM, ONA, Arte di Mano and Wotancraft. Besides details of the T, we also world-premiered several new products from our friend Walter and ONA. We also interviewed great folks like Nikki Sixx and Birgit Krippner.
This past year we've also upgraded to a new server and added several new features. We've expanded our social media presence with the introduction of a new Flickr group and Facebook page. We're continuing to grow at a rapid pace and encourage you to join us! We will continue to report breaking and daily news here first including fresh, unique content in the Leicasphere! Don't wait for others to copy us! If you enjoy La Vida Leica, be sure to spread the word - and to our followers, likers and friends - thank you!

Added today is the Leica and Bauhausian Simplicity of Design article!
This article expands on our previous articles of what makes a Leica - a Leica. More from an emotional standpoint and how the clean, simple design appeals to ardent Leica photographers.

We've been so busy lately that one of our strongest suits, unique content - has lagged a little. So without further ado, we'd like to share our latest article - "The Fascination with Full Frame."
This article delves into the mystique of the full frame sensor and why many photographers see it as the be all, end all of digital photography. Comparisons are made against APS-C and APS-H sensors and their effect.

Now that we're on a fast new server and the migration has gone well, we're on to adding cool new features to the site. Effective immediately, the members-only Feeds page (go here to register!) includes 16 of the most recent images in the Flickr Leica pool and all lens Reviews now have a "Flickr Pool Images" section featuring a gorgeous (full screen capable) slideshow of images from the group pools! We think you'll really like these additions to our exclusive content and articles, and will be featuring this capability wherever appropriate going forward to provide you with the best user experience possible. Enjoy! Read more below for a sample.

A La Vida Leica exclusive! Today ONA is announcing their newest bag... Designed in collaboration with - and celebrating 100 years of Leica photography, "The Berlin!" This limited edition bag was designed specifically for the M-System and the Leica-inspired design cues are subtle, but clear when you notice them. This is a beautiful, upscale bag that compromises nothing in form or function.
We were given access to a bag from the first batch and pleased to present our review of ONA's "The Berlin" bag to coincide with the announcement!
