    if the lenses are made in China, den Canon willhave alot of cleansing to do in China.. Otherwise the consumers will be boycotting their products.. Canon will not allow their M&Ms be taken away.. hehe..

    Canon so mahuan one.Olympus(Not Sigma),just go to the shop,open for warranty card fill,check the physical condition(Most of the time good) then pay $$ and walk away.Olympus promise no dust speck.No QC issue.

    It is only hear say that some components of their lenses are made in China.
    In computer world this is so common.
    If you opened up an IBM PC you may find components made in Mexico for example.
    Anyway I have a Fuji camera made in Indonesia.

    I am ok with Canon standard lenses to be made out of Japan, bit I'll never never buy any L lenses that is made elsewhere except Japan (if I know). L lenses have to be totally made in Japan.

    Regardless which type of lens , they made from china,even there are in the component level.
    Important , there should has good QA or QC procedure system in place.
    If there are loop hole on the QA or QC system. How Good you can expectfrom the part?

    They may be only assembled in Japan, but many components inside are almost certainly already made in China.......it is the QC during assembly that should be the defining factor.

    QC in China can be good too as long as they are trained properly.

    When I look at the refurbished area of Adorama Camera in the U.S.A., they sometimes have L-series lenses available, but there is no way to know the frequency of the problems that caused them to be repaired.

    Yes of cos they can but there are still chances that QC in China are still not well-controlled.

    maybe Japan wants to reserve their best of canon within japan only.. so they wont use china to qc the Ls..

    it can be made in china or made in japan or timbuktu for the matter but if there's a lousy pair of made in singapore eyes behind the lens, they're all crap.

    Similar for lenses which are not so gd quality. Even with a gd pair of eyes, pics can look crap too.
