How A Leica Lens Is Made

I love getting into the tech of cameras. Digital cameras nowadays are incredibly sophisticated, and perform in an amazing range of situations. To illustrate the complexity of the process of creating a camera lens, here’s a quick video from Leica. Hopefully someday I’ll be able to use one of these when I get my hands on a covert edition Leica M9-P

Every Leica lens is hand-crafted and goes through meticulous manufacturing processes to uphold the quality and precision that Leica defines and customers have come to expect. In the age where technology almost inevitably means mass manufacturing, Leica products are still made with exacting precision by the hands of highly-trained technicians.

This video gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the craftsmanship and making of Leica lenses in the production facilities of Leica Camera AG.
