Die Leica-Kamera ist zweifellos eines jener zur Ikone gewordenen Objekte, die das 20. Jahrhundert charakterisiert haben und deren Nimbus unvermindert weiter wirkt. Von ihrem genialen Schöpfer, Oskar Barnack, in die Welt gesetzt, eröffnete sie der bis dahin mehr oder weniger statischen Fotografie völlig neue, geradezu revolutionäre Möglichkeiten. Sie trug damit ganz entscheidend dazu bei, ihren Zeitgenossen und allen nachwachsenden Generationen die Welt in Bildern ganz neu zu zeigen. Ein Aspekt, den dieses Buch besonders herausstellt, indem es die technische Entwicklung von der Ur-Leica bis zu den jüngsten Hich-Tech-Kameras der legendären Marke nicht nur dokumentiert, sondern auch in den zeithistorischen, gesellschaftlichen und ästhetischen Kontext setzt. Faszinierend illustriert und faktenreich ist es Lesebuch, Nachschlagewerk und Kaleidoskop eines Jahrhunderts zugleich.
