    90 Elmarit made in Germany?

    I just purchased a 90 Elmarit and it says Germany on the lens? I thought they were all made in Canada?

    You wanna watch out for those Italian dude's - they take off the sliding lens hood before shipping

    Depends on the models. Most were made in Germany AFAIK:
    - Elmarit 90/2.8, # 11129, 1959-1974: Germany
    - Tele-Elmarit 90/2.8 ('fat'), # 11800, 1967-1974: Germany
    - Tele-Elmarit-M 90/2.8 ('thin'), # 11800, 1974-1989: mostly Canada
    - Elmarit-M 90/2.8, # 11807 (also # 11808 & 11899), 1989-2003: Germany
