Michael Williams, of aContinuousLean.com website, has put together these two videos showing off how the Germans make their Leica M9 -- the Audi of photographic cameras.

It's actually no wonder that these cameras cost in the range of $7,000 USD apiece. When you'll look at the videos, you will be amazed at the careful attention to detail that the technicians go into putting each one of these cameras together by hand. And just in case the Germans' reputation for quality products wasn't high enough, they know where every single little screw goes by heart.
