    As long as the company still do their proper QC checks, we'll still be assured of a good piece of tool...

    ofcourse in that aspects you are right!
    Say! isn't it cheaper and must well get it from china. since it has international
    warranty and besides there are some reputed shops there that sells good stuff.

    it doesnt matter to me actually, its the picture that counts

    unless you are concerned abt being made in japan you can get the older lenses, or you can get the more expensive lenses.

    the mic nikkors still deliver pretty much a very good amount of quality
    chezburgr i can haz?

    every it put "made in Japan"...do u know lots of item inside that "made in Japan" shell r come from China factory or PBL? so wat is the diff....unless the same model at the same price then u should go for Japn made cos the retail will make lesser margin...that's the diff.

    Ya ! you could be right, but as far as I know in some countries.
    if the product is not made in the country stated, if found out
    can be Sued!!

    Alot of garments are actually made somewhere else, but only at the last moment many factories will put the label in for example France and can state that it was made in France!

    Materials can be sourced from other places, but if the assebly area is in France, as your example is, then they are correct to put the label there.

    These days, even the electronics and other equipment are often done this way, parts made in china, taiwan, etc. Assembled in Vietnam, Thailand, etc...
