    Welcome to LeicaPlace (LP)! LP is a new site/forum for Leica users.

    While there are some great Leica communities on the web already, some of the larger ones can at times get pretty grumpy. Our goal is to create a kinder, friendlier place for Leica users to hang out.

    The forum index is structured to include all Leica-related gear, whether it's the latest digital Leica M, a Bessa using the Leica Screw Mount, or a Panasonic LX7 using a Leica lens.

    Please feel free to introduce yourself or just dive into the forums without an introduction. Hope you enjoy LP!

    PS - Jono, if you're up for it, I'd love to record a podcast chat with you about the new M one of these days...

    Hi Amin! The new site looks good, well done!

    A friendly Leica place sounds great, seen some quite unfriendly posters on other big Leica messageboards..

    I am on a little holiday now, but I would love to post some pictures here in the near future :)

    Well, I was wondering if you were going to proceed with this site, Amin. You kind of went quiet on the subject for a bit. But, here you are.

    Since my closest connection to Leica is currently the lens on my Panasonic LX7, I may lurk more than anything else. But I'm on board. Congratulations and good luck!

    Amin, I think this is a great idea to try and have a "friendlier" environment for Leica users, especially newer ones.

    Amin, this is a great idea. I'm in. The "friendlier" aspect can be turned into a real differentiator.

    Regards,
