No. The new version would come with a 5-year warranty. I'd take it in a heartbeat.

ETA: I would be shocked if there were any difference in IQ between the two. Unless I heard of some kind of QC issues with the more recent copy related to its production being moved to Japan, it would be completely inconsequential.

I agree with Paul. I believe products in China are made to the standards company contracting them set. Almost all Apple products are made in China and the quality of Apple products are very high, same for Nikon. If the quality is low it's usually because the distributer are set low and they are trying to maximize profits.
