Leica Camera Writes:

Join us in celebrating the birthday of the incredible Dr. Ernst Leitz, who would have been 169 years old today! An entrepreneur and leader who had a great interest in microscopes, as well as passion for the natural world around him, founded Leica in Germany in 1869. Our heritage of precision optics started with him and continues to thrive today. Cheers!
