I think you'll like it. I believe that the parts were made in Germany but
Cosina did the assembly.

I picked up a Rollei 40mm lens in LTM which arrived while I was out of town.
Haven't shot a roll with it yet but I see it is labled as 'Made in Germany'
(& not Japan). The build quality seems first rate (i.e. very Leica like). It
comes in a green box with a hard leather case and Leica M Mount adapter. The
lens includes a small built-in hood and front and rear lens cap.

I believe Rollei made the mistake of assuming that any lens built for Leica
cameras should sell for Leica prices. 

I find a modern lens in LTM a big advantage as I can use it on my LTM
cameras. More to come when I get back a developed and scanned roll.
