“Leica is excited to open its Miami location where we can now showcase inspiring photography and products in a city that is rich in art, culture and international business.” says Roland Wolff, vice president of marketing and corporate retail.  “Along with the Leica Store DC and Leica Store SoHo, this new location in Coral Gables is the newest addition to the network of locations dedicated to bringing the Leica products and lifestyle to a wider audience.”

A unique lifestyle destination, the 2,200 square-foot Leica Store Miami has opened in conjunction with Dale Photo & Digital, based in Ft. Lauderdale.  Customers will be able to experience the iconic brand and marvel at the photographic exhibits in an atmosphere that befits Leica’s tradition of German innovation and artistic excellence.  In addition to the entire product portfolio, the location will also offer a variety of special edition Leica Camera products such as the Leica X2 Edition Paul Smith.

Dale Photo & Digital has long been considered a leading Leica dealer. Our Leica specialists all have extensive product knowledge and an unmatched passion for the Leica brand,” said David Farkas, owner of Dale Photo & Digital along with wife Juliana. “We are extremely pleased and excited to bring this expertise and enthusiasm to Leica Store Miami. For us, opening one of the first Leica Stores in the United States was a logical progression for our business and we look forward to serving the Leica community.”

Leica Stores and boutiques complement an extensive dealer network and serve to further grow the brand in North America. In addition to the new Miami location, Leica Stores can also be found in Washington D.C.  and New York City. Leica Camera will continue to expand in 2013 with additional North America store locations.

  1. I stopped by the Miami Store this morning. I handled the new M for about a half an hour. I don’t like rangefinders or DSLR’s. I only use manual focus glass on a mirrorless Ricoh GXR. So I’m only interesting in the Leica M, because its the worlds only full frame mirrorless at the moment. I put the EVF on the M and took a bunch of shots with my lenses to see how the focus assist works.

    The Miami Store is beautiful inside and the young man and woman working there were very friendly and knowledgable!

  2. Very cool.

    One should really check out these locations if you are in the neighbourhood.
    I didn’t know of them when I bought my Leica gear (so I wasn’t swayed by them) but by chance I then stumbled upon the one in Mayfair, London, England.
    These places are so welcoming to all photographers, promoting photography in general as well as of course selling the Leica brand.
    I had a question for a technician there, and ended up chatting for almost an hour enjoying the cappucinos they were providing. I now know far more than I thought possible as to how rangefinders really focus at infinity!

  3. Is it by private appointments only or can you drop in and view the inventory? I have been at the London UK store several times and it’s OK to just stop in and check things out. I’ll be in Miami in April and would like to check out the new M 240.
