Tamron: Made in Japan vs. China

Hi there,

I went to a store today where the Tamron I'm looking at (17-50mm) is sold but it's out of stock. I'm told that the next batch will be "Made in China" whereas previously the ones were made in Japan.

Hmmm, so I checked my 28-75mm lens, and sure enough, it's Made in China. Actually, I have no complaint about my 28-75 as it seems quite sharp, so my question is: do people feel there is a difference in quality between made in Japan vs. China? There is no price difference between the two.

Thanks for any comments,
Ken

10 years ago, i would be wary but nowadays, it doesn't matter where it is made. As long as it is not a counterfeit product, there shouldn't be any difference.:)
