There is a 16mm 3 cam R lens on ebay for sale. It looks clean but it clearly says made in Japan! How many lenses, if any, did Leica make in Japan?

You got a great response from VK2109.Two of the three Leica lenses I own are actually Schneider Glass,but Leica put their name on them.

That is still a great lens with very little distortion and with technology today you can take the distortion out of the shot for the most part I believe.One of the guys I assisted for back in the day had one in his case and if kept level it was amazing.
Overpriced a bit it seems,but hard to find I bet you....
