Steve Huff says Leica T lenses not made by Panasonic! Really!

Steve says, "At least that is what Stefan Daniel told me......" I wonder if steve really believes that.

Perhaps Stefan Daniel of Leica is being economical with the truth!

Leica T lenses are made in Japan.

If there's already a Japanese company successfully manufacturing quality Leica branded lenses that meets Leica standards, why wouldn't Leica use them. Surely they didn't look for the cheapest manufacturer, as that would go against the Leica ethos.

What do you think?

I guess it doesn't really matter which company made them if they perform to Leica standards , but Steve made such a point of it, I kind of found it amusing.
