Quite simply, the finest camera bags available. FOGG is the perfect complement to the Leica. Nigel Fogg and bee berman design - and continually refine - the world’s most opulent and fully functional photographic bags. Carrying a FOGG camera bag is a little like playing a handmade guitar or driving a fine car - or like the click of a Leica shutter - the feel is singular and solid, functional and opulent.

The Soprano fits an M camera with almost any lens, plus flash or additional smaller M lens with its “trap-door” divider system. And like all FOGG satchels, the Soprano boasts a removable strap runs under the bag for stability, linen lining that conceals thick foam padding, and leather detailing to reinforce high-stress areas.

The muse is upon us! The Lyre is slightly larger than the Soprano, and offers all the brilliant features of FOGG bags – the removable strap that runs under the bag for stability, the linen lining that conceals thick foam padding and rich leather detailing that reinforces high-stress areas. Plus, there’s a pleated pouch under the main flap and a flat rear pocket.

The B-Laïka is tailor-made for the Leica M rangefinder along with two or three favorite lenses. And there’s room for your accessories, too.

Compact and heavily padded, the B-Laïka comes with three protective dividers. This satchel will hold an M body with 50 Summicron. What about the wonderful wide 28 and the profound portrait 75mm M lenses? They fit, too. The B-Laïka front and rear pockets leave room for documents and a guidebook.


Here is where it all began. From 1925 until 1960, Leica made myriad camera models, lenses and accessories for the world’s first 35mm camera system.


The pinnacle of analog single lens reflex cameras: the Leica R System. Made from 1965-2009, the system is made up of more than a dozen different cameras and some 50 lenses.
