Made by Leica? No.

Designed by Leica? Probably not given that design and the ability to manufacture a given design in quantity are so intertwined.

Given Leica's "stamp" of approval via branding? Sure. I guess they could be involved in the design, though, as in: "make your lens to these basic specs and we'll let you put our name on it."

I've got some of the Panasonic m43 Leicas. I like 'em!
