I’m still really excited about my Leica M8.1, however I always wondered how these cameras are made. Leica always states these are hand assembled, and this fantastic video shows the M8 successor, the M9 in its assembling phases. Very cool attention to detail, and this is part of the reason why their products cost so much. The factory (laboratory?) is also very very german….which is a good thing!
