    I noticed my new 40-150mm type R (E-PM2 kit) is made in Vietnam while my other 40-150mm type R is made in China?

    Does anyone know if there are any discernible differences in quality between the two? I have a local buyer from Craigslist stopping by in the morning to buy one of them, and i'm wondering if there's any reason to keep one of the other.

    That's all up to Q/A, which should be the same ;) If you've tried them both and there's no discernable difference, and the new one still has a warranty, that might also be reason to keep it.

    FWIW, my 40-150 R is made in china, so they must have production in at least both of those countries.. It's a recent purchase (not part of a kit)..
