Primos uses Leitz glass made in Canada I think, but I think they do a lot of the finishing work in-house. I don't know where the glass elements for the E-Series came from; Panavision used to cannibalize all sorts of glass in the past, Canon, Cooke, Zeiss, etc.

From what I hear the E-Series are Nikon glass. As for the C-series, as David points out, they are manufactured from different glass. These lenses got made over a series of years and each lens is individual, i.e. they don't even look the same.

Apparently the 40mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm C-Series are Cooke, the 60mm is Zeiss (there's few of those around) and Minolta and Pentax glass was used for some of the wider lenses.
