Seems like this is Leica's response to CZ's new ZM lenses.
The translated press release is kind of confusing. Says the new lenses were developed in Germany and so carry the "larva in Germany" designation. Can't quite figure out what would be the correct synonym for "larva"* - could mean "made". But does that mean manufactured there?
I wonder where these new lenses are actually being made?
* "larva" as used in English is an immature, pre-adult, stage of an insect's life span - suggesting perhaps these lenses while "designed" in Germany are not being built there?
