Panasonic uses the Leica badge to label their premium lenses (just like Olympus uses "PRO" and Canon uses "L"). It's not an optical construction Leica did but Panasonic.

We don't know that for sure. Take the 35-100mm f2.8 for instance. Panasonic could easily have branded that as a Leica based on its outstanding performance. But they haven't. So why would they not have done that if they only do a Leica rebranding exercise?

Ooh i know this one. Speaking with my Panasonic rep, apparently at the time those lenses were released the cross branding agreement only allowed primes. It wasn't until years later they changed it to allow zoom lenses
