Option to Buy Some Leica M Lenses Made in Germany or Portugal

Option to Buy Some Leica M Lenses Made in Germany or Portugal:

For those wanting to save some money when buying new M lenses, Leica has a new option: There are select M lenses that are now being made in Portugal and Germany.  According to Leica, the lenses made in their Portugal factory offer the same stringent design, construction tolerances, and pristine quality as the ones made in Germany.  Here are the lenses being offered:

I think this is a good idea overall.  For some, this may be a better option than buying used gear.  You’ll save some money, and also get something that is brand spanking new with warranty.  It’s worth nothing that the lenses Leica has chosen so far are some of the more popular ones too.  Plus, It’s great that they added the 50mm f1.4 Lux ASPH Black Chrome Edition, and one of my favorite M lenses, the 28mm Summaron (For those interested in my review of it, you can read it here).
