This subject was heavily debated in past recent years, and if you search, will find tons of threads on the subject.  I don't recall than anyone was ever able to positively demonstrate that Vietnam assembled lenses are sub-standard to their counterpart assembled in Japan in a systematic way.  It might have been possibly true in the early days of Vietnam production, struggling with the inevitable quality assurance issues associated with any new assembly process, but it remains more of a folklore belief than an actual fact.
