For some time Leica manufactured a large part of their camera body and lens line at Midland, Ontario. Dr Walter Mandler was the top optical designer there for many years, having emigrated from Germany to take that role.
Were Leitz binoculars ever produced there, and also, does anyone know if Leica still retain any connection with Midland? I believe maybe Raytheon operate out of Midland now.
(Though some consumers were a bit snotty about wanting only the German-made products there was absolutely no quality difference between Canadian and German lenses of the same spec.) So I wondered if some bino manufacture happened there too.
