The Leica T Camera System follows its own unique principle of reduction to the essence – and complete dedication to the joy of photography. A clear and precise focus is essential to the nature of photography. Denial is not a suitable beginning, but fusion certainly is. A fusion of style, true craftsmanship and simple handling – a symbiosis of the best. Less is more. More joy of photography. The system is totally convincing. In its reduction to the essentials. Both in its design and its inner technologies. It has everything it needs and nothing more. Minimised, yet so perfect. Never before has taking pictures been this easy. And never before has it felt so good.
