La Vida Leica Leads Photokina 2014 Coverage!

There's no doubt about it - this year's Leica Camera AG event at the Photokina 2014 show in Cologne, Germany was their biggest, by far. Releasing no less than eight cameras, eight lenses, a huge assortment of accessories, the Fotopark cloud service and a whole bunch of firmware updates. Even Zeiss and Voigtländer joined the party! La Vida Leica was proud to be the first website in the world with such complete coverage of all of these wonderful products. We'd like to thank our sources that helped make our predictions essentially 100% correct leading up to the big day! A lot of people didn't believe us... At first! We wish Leica Camera AG much success with their fantastic new products! Please enjoy the easy-to-browse product matrix at the top of our homepage to catch up on all the news. We've reposted it down below.

We started our day at 3:15am EST, posting all the new items as fast and furiously as we could (seriously, there was a lot to post!). It took us about three to four hours just to get all the major products covered completely. But it didn't stop there. Over the course of the day, we went back and enhanced each and every post with more information, better pictures, updated links and pricing - and also covered Leica-related products from Zeiss and Voigtländer. We kept going for about 12 full hours, updating and tweaking until we were satisfied that we had the best coverage anywhere. And it paid off... It was a real benchmark day for the site! Our server didn't blink an eye and kept up perfectly. Whew!

Finally, we'd like to thank all of you - our faithful readers, likers, followers and friends - for making La Vida Leica what it is! A real joy to be involved with such a fantastic group of people from all over the world. It's been our pleasure to give you this extensive coverage and keeping you informed!
