We are one of the largest Leica dealerships in the world for more than 50 years, and we are based in downtown Chicago since 2012. We are open to the public Monday-Friday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., by appointment only.
Working By Appointment Only means that you get our full and undivided attention, and therefore the best service on the planet, in a luxurious environment surrounded by the opulence of the Leica Museum and the Rangefinder Gallery.
To best serve all our clientele, appointments are limited to 50 minutes.
In advance of your appointment, we’ll need to know what you wish to see or experience or examine so that we can prepare for your visit. Also, if you are trading or selling that is likewise important information for us so that we can serve you efficiently.
Each Friday afternoon we open our doors to the public – no appointment needed.
Our Open Fridays encourage learning about Leica, plunking down in a comfy chair in our library with a monograph, viewing the photographs on display in the Rangefinder Gallery, and schmoozing with other Leicaphiles. (Please bear in mind that when you visit on a Friday afternoon there may be limited opportunity to view or test or examine our new and used gear.)
Thank you for shopping at Tamarkin Camera – we look forward to serving you!
