Not likely. This misses the point. Ultimate quality COSTS. There's no way to correlate that final incremental increase in quality with a similar slight increase in price. The final 5% ALWAYS triples or quadruples the price. Leica costs money. Zeiss costs money. Rollei costs money. Quality costs money -- if you want junk, then buy cheap.
