Contax Yashica lenses - German vs Japanese

I got a few C/Y lenses, some in good conditions and some which went to service and coming back in better shape, I was just wondering about difference between my German made ones and Japanese ones, I seem to recall optically they are the same, is that correct?

I will use them on a ML camera which still has to come, I use Nikon D-SLR and they can't mount on them not to mention MF and ageing sight... but can't wait to check myself the marvels of the Distagon 35/1.4 and Planar 85/1.4 and 100/2
