There is also the book ‘Leica Lens Saga’ from by the same author. If anyone here is familiar – or better still owns – these books, I would like to know whether they are substantially different or cover much the same ground.

Personally I find the old one less intimidating but still very recommendable.


The Lens Saga is very technical, as said by 01af.

The Leica Compendium also includes information and reviews of Leica lenses released between and and for each and all lenses includes photographs of the lens, lens computation diagrams showing the elements and ray-tracing, Modular Transfer Function charts, and putz descriptions and notes on each one.
