The Kardon Leica copy came with an an Ektar normal len. I've seen reproductions of '40s ads stating that it was available separately to "upgrade" Leicas, but I have no idea if many were actually sold. The lens should be at least the equal of a Summitar. AFAIK, Ektar glass was always made in Rochester, NY.
