All the Panasonic lenses are made in the same factory in Japan. Rumours are the Leica name is missing to save on licence fees per unit. There's no way to know whether Panasonic utilises the same Leica-certified design and manufacturing standards for the FZ70. More than likely not. This camera is designed purely to a marketing specification with the lowest possible cost to turn units on Amazon. Panasonic are still in dire financial straits and couldn't give 2 hoots what a bunch of enthusiasts on a forum think. (We) are about .01% of the market...
