The 60/2.8G AFS was initially manufactured in Japan (my 60 is one that is) but production apparently moved to Thailand later on for them, so it's not a per-country thing. You might find a used 60 from Japan somewhere if that's a big deal for you, but the lenses design (at least for the 60), being a prime without VR, isn't something as complex as, say, a 14-24 where perhaps the Japan assembly and QA might be better in terms of production quality. I wouldn't hesitate to pick one a 60/2.8G up based upon it's country of manufacture. It's one hell of a lens, the least expensive entry into the land of Nikons best glass.
