    Question Nikon 50mm f1.8D

    Is this lens Made in China?

    I know that the non D version is made in Japan.

    Very interesting, after reading this thread, I checked my lenses for markings. The 85mm F1.8D has a print "Make in Japan" on lens body, whereas the 50mm F1.4D at similar location only put "Nikon Japan".

    might be factory print wrongly

    Some older AF 50mm/f1.4D are made in Japan, the newer batches are all made in China.

    And the wording on the lenses are "Made in Japan", no mistakes.

    I am sorry, went back to check again, it is "MADE IN JAPAN".

    It seems that when it is made in Japan, they print "MADE IN JAPAN", when they print "NIKON JAPAN" that must be implies that "not made in Japan" right.
