The price will be slightly discounted. Some Leica M series lenses will be moved to Portugal
This article is from Hummingbird.com
To diversify the supply chain , Leica is transferring the production of some Leica M series lenses to Portugal. It should be noted that this measure does not affect the quality of Leica products. All production standards and guidelines are implemented as usual, but the location is different. This move will make the prices of these lenses in the United States much lower than similar products made in Germany, and there is no compromise in quality. Lenses made in Portugal will be on the shelves from August to December 2020.
The lenses produced in Portugal will include: LeicaSummilux-M50mmf/1.4ASPH. ,
This is not the first time in Leica history that the production location of cameras and lenses has been changed. During the Cold War in the 1960s, Leica moved most of its camera and lens production to Ontario, Canada for reasons of political stability. Like Leica’s latest production initiative, Leica products have not been affected by quality issues due to their relocation to Canada.
