Founded by Ernst Leitz in 1849 to make telescopes in Germany, Leica ('Leitz' plus 'camera') has been known for high-end cameras and optics throughout its history. In 1925 the company released its revolutionary 35mm camera, which was generally regarded as the first true handheld. Leicas are especially sought by collectors today because even old ones, when serviced, can still work perfectly.
