Leica Glass –
Made in Germany
It is unfortunate when politics gets in the way of photography, but then photography can be a political statement.
The USA has placed an additional sales tax onto German lens hitting Leica, so Leica who also have production facilities in Portugal are now producing lens there to ship direct to the USA mitigating the sales tax.
It is a shame these cheaper lens cannot be purchased here. I would like a 75mm or 90mm Summicron.
