Maybe this is old news but I found this somewhat interesting. I esp like the loud hammering at the beginning of the video (makes you wonder! :P).

I found this somewhat interesting.

It should be mentioned that all these steps of checking and testing are not just done to a few selected control samples but to every single camera body being made.

Well the video was posted on LL in september 2009 and has been discussed here a numerous of times, but not so much in the last 6-months or so.

Here is the original post on LL: Assembling the Leica M9-Intro

It has a part two, where it continues and finishes by end-adjusting...an M8.2 :eek::D

Thanks to the OP for the repost. I hadn't seen the original but watched all of these two. Very interesting.

FANTASTIC! I can not thank you enough!
Something is not "old news" to those who have never seen it: like me.
So much good info here..... I love it.
Dig the way she cleans the sensor for instance. I have raved about not using
"sticky stuff" but she's got something sticky on the end of that stick. But, also
notice when that she then uses a solution and swab to break loose the "welded"
particulate matter.... so, I'll keep on using Sensor Swabs and Eclipse as always.
Good info on how easy it is to take apart, for guys like me who like to take things
apart.
