How do I know that the lens is made in Portugal or Germany ? You are not stating this detail.
Asked by: Aldo
The Leica Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH is made in Leica's Germany factory. Leica made some popular focal lengths in Portugal under different catalog #'s in 2020 when 25% tariffs were impose on the importation of lenses from Germany into the U.S. Leica did this to give consumers options on buying either ones made in Portugal or ones made in Germany. The lenses were identical in every way except for the price and where the COO was. These tariffs have since been lifted and currently, all Leica M lenses are manufactured in Germany.
