    100 Years of Leica

    I didn't know Leica was (Lei = first three letters of "Leitz") and (ca = first two letters of "Camera)....

    Couple of years ago I saw a man explaining to his girlfriend/wife in front of some Camera store in Munich: "to express admiration to Leica dog that went to space - they named the camera Leica".

    I guess the correct way to write that poor dog's name would be "Laika"... so there's only a resemblance in the way the two names sound, not the way they are written.


    (for a German, that pronounces the brand name "Leica" the correct way of course... 'cause an Anglo-saxon will pronounce it "Lay-ka" which is different from the "Lie-ka" which is the correct way to pronounce both words)
