Hi, Im new to the hobby and in love with Micro 4/3, specially Olympus, never though i could take such good pictures with such a small and compact setup. That said im still on my way to completing my lens, and something that might or not matter arise. In the past, most of the Japan made stuff was highly regarded in almost any industry, but today most of the manufacturing of the world has move to China, and i see this on lenses also, specially my Oly 45mm f1.8, and some others. The reason for this thread is mainly to gather opinions in terms of does the Japan made still carries higher value and should be pursue or China manufacturing on lenses in on par with Japan? Looking for mainly Olympus manufacturing.
