It may be one of those myths we hear, but I think I read once that when E.
Leitz set up the Canadian operation, they sent their best and brightest to
do it.

I certainly don't have anything to complain about from the three Canadian
Leitz lenses I own.

> >> I've been into photography for 30 years and finally saw  the light and
bought a new Leica M6TTL with a used 50mm Summicron M (made in Canada). I
mention "Canada" because I  was recently snubbed by a fellow Leica user for
buying a  Canadian  Summicron versus the latest German model. My shots have
been  outstanding so didn't pay much attention.
