Leica Historical Society of America (LHSA) is an independent, nonprofit membership organization dedicated to everything regarding the Leica camera. It changed name in 2012 to "LHSA - The International Leica Society" so as to be international rather than American. [1]

The LHSA is mainly for collectors of Leica historical and rare pieces of Leica cameras and lenses. LHSA has also originated limited LHSA-editions of Leica cameras and lenses that Leica Camera AG has created, for example the Leica MP 3 0.72 LHSA Special Edition.


Viewfinder, a quarterly journal, dedicated to Leica use and history.


LHSA arrange bi-yearly conferences that their more than 1,000 active members all over the world are invited to. Membership is open to anyone interested in Leica cameras.
