Thread: A peek inside the Leica factory in Germany

    Default A peek inside the Leica factory in Germany

    Dpreview has posted a fascinating pictoral essay as to how Leica cameras and lenses are made at its factory in Solms, Germany.

    http://www.dpreview.com/articles/leicafactory2009/

    Someone asked why the Leica M9 costs US$7K -- maybe the answer can be found by talking a virtual walk around the factory floor.

    Personally, I'm v interested in the compact (APSC size) Leica X1 -- this reminds me so much of my old Nikon 35Ti. Hope Nikon will rise to the competition and come out with a more affordable version of the X1.

    For S$30K, it better be -- paired with those new Leica S lenses, probably the ultimate in IQ.
