I have bought this book twice now, the older edition and this new one.
The 2004 (current) edition is obviously more complete and definetevely worthed having it, adding reviews on the newest Leica lenses and cameras, if you need a book on Leica which encloses pretty much everything at a decent price this one is, but, in my opinion, it falls sometimes short on description and often on pictures as well, even if there are some very beautiful color ones scattered around (but too little...). Don't get me wrong, with this book you get to have a look at ALL Leica products, from the beginning to date, but even at over 600 pages, there is a feeling of something missing, you are left craving for more...I do own the Jim Lager Illustrated Leica History on three volumes, much more expensive but so much more full of detailed info and beautiful life size pictures...
Another low point of this book is also the pretty large amount of typographical errors...they could have done better with that...!
All in all, anyway, after the Lager Leica "Bible", this is the one to go if you are a Leica addict...and if you're reading this you probably are...!

This book came new and shrink wrapped in immaculate condition.
It has a wealth of information about Leica cameras, lenses and accessories and history of the company with chapters on collecting.
I helps to identify and date Leica equipment and has lists of serial numbers associated with the dates equipment was made.
I have found it useful, informative and interesting.

With a bookshelf of books on the subject of Leica cameras I have always felt myself to be well informed. The latest acquistion has given me so much more. Denis Laneys book goes further than the rest and must be the most comprehensive guide ever. It identifies items particularly in the area of photomicrography and photomacrography that have not previously been seen. It is a delight to pick up and browse, but might Denis Laney be persuaded to pick up the pen one more time and cover the elusive topic of E Leitz microscopes?

A must to have if you like/own Leica cameras. High quality publication, display, and most certainly the information. Arrived promptly from the US and was very well packaged. Highly recommended!
