Announcing Leica M-Lenses Designed in Germany, Made in Portugal

In an endeavor to diversify its supply chain, Leica is shifting production of select Leica M-series lenses to Portugal. It should be noted that this move does not affect the quality of workmanship of Leica products—all production standards and guidelines are being followed as before, only in a different location. As a result of this move, prices for many popular Leica M lenses in the US will be considerably lower than their German-made counterparts, without any compromises in quality. For Leica enthusiasts here in the US, this is big news.

The Portugese-made lenses, which include the Leica Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH. (black), Leica Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH. (silver), Leica Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH. (black-chrome), Leica Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH. (silver), Leica Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH (black)., Leica Summaron-M 28mm f/5.6 (silver), Leica Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH., Leica Summicron-M 50mm f/2 (black), and Leica Elmarit-M 28mm f/2.8 ASPH., will begin appearing on dealer shelves starting in August, and continuing through December 2020.
