Our passion, quite simply - is photography.


So what is La Vida Leica all about? Primarily a meeting place for M system photographers to catch up on the latest news and rumors, discuss all manner of topics within the community and gain insight into gear through reviews and feature articles. It's not a personal blog, though they're available. It's also not a commercial site as we don't sell anything, though members can buy and sell gear in the forum. We're just a place to call home and share information with like-minded photographers from beginner to seasoned veteran and all are welcome.

We're not just "focused" on Leica, but also Zeiss, Cosina/Voigtländer and others that all contribute to the "M system" as a whole. We're also not about digital vs. film but embracing both and cover everything from the latest digital to the oldest film bodies and lenses (including the LTM mount).

A site dedicated to photographers passionate in their choice of the Leica M (or compatible) system for crafting their art.

We're Organic...

One thing worth pointing out is that the content here (mainly articles and reviews) is ever-evolving. Rather than present static content, it grows organically - more in-depth as it matures. We'll constantly be improving the experience, adding additional details and information to content and reviews. So you can look forward to the most up-to-date and thorough information.

While we don't want to share all of the neat things we have in store just yet, the site will continue to grow as well. Many features are planned and already underway behind the scenes and one example of this is the recent grand opening of our gallery - each member gets their own section to upload their images!

...and Social

We'll be updating you here, on Facebook, Twitter and on Google+. Our forums are available via Tapatalk and Forum Runner for the iPhone, iPad and Android platforms. We're even on Flickr and YouTube. At the bottom of each page, you'll see your familiar social media widgets for sharing our content with others.

Wir sprechen auch Deutsch hier, wenn Sie es möchten!

And that's what this site is all about - a sense of community and the sharing of information. In fact, here are some of the community efforts we manage:
