Leica UK managing director Jason Heward brings TLS members up to date on developments.

Last week we reported on the Leica Society’s annual visit to Leica UK at the Duke Street store and gallery. The highlight of that article was David Slater’s impressive strip down of a Leica Q, before our very eyes.

Fellow Leica Society member, Dunk Sargent, has sent in a few more pictures which I am sure readers will enjoy. They give perhaps a better flavour of the day than I was able to give in the earlier article.

My thanks to Dunk for the careful captioning of the photographs. The pictures are all taken with the Leica SL, most with the Leica R 19/2.8 MkII and the David Slater picture with the Leica R 35-70 f/4.

    • The Leica Society membership includes lady Leica enthusiasts. Our lady members are active in e.g. Leica Circle postal folios using a variety of Leica cameras/lenses.

      • And not one of them will be wearing Lilac Lulu Lemon tights or secreting their cameras in a wicker basket. They are made of sterner stuff.

    • I learned too late in life to get a toy poodle to meet woman! On a more serious note, I meet amazing woman photographers but for some reason unknown to me Leica seems largely the domain of men.

  1. David Suchet is my favourite actor – particularly portraying accurately Poirot. Now if Leica had the brilliance to bring out a special Poirot edition I would be on it as it would be so refined and perfect! You are so lucky to be in the presence of such talent!
    Also thanks for the article.
