Subject: Re: [Leica] RE: Leica glass

This subject periodically comes up with much misinformation and varied
opinion.  The last time it arose the best information was that Leica makes
some test glass and may make some glass for the Noctilux.  Otherwise, they buy
all of their production glass - made to their specifications.
