If Leica could outsource lenses like the Noctilux and significantly cut the purchase price, I might consider it.

Leica has done it. They have outsourced lens production to Minolta and to Sigma in the past.

Way back in 1970 when I had a Leica M4 my 35mm f/1.4 summilux was made in Canada. Oh and it was faulty when I bought it brand new, the rangefinder cam had to be re-machined in order to achieve accurate focus.
