We're paying more for the Leica name

The so-called "Panasonic Leica" 12mm f/1.4 was not designed by either company.

According to 43 Rumours , the lens was designed by Sigma.

If it was designed by Sigma, there's a strong chance it was also manufactured by Sigma. It certainly wasn't manufactured by Leica.

I don't have a problem with Sigma designing and manufacturing lenses for Panasonic.

I do have a problem with Leica's name being on the lens, as this makes it more expensive.

Why should we have to pay extra just for Leica bragging rights?
