They are Kyocera manufactured, Leica designed and have nothing to do with
Zeiss. Kyocera does handle a Zeiss lens production line, under Zeiss
supervision, but that is seperate to the Leica line (which also produces a
number of other OEM products). I have the latter two and they are really
great lenses which are at least up to the Solms standard of production
quality as far as I can tell.
