Most Nikon DSLRs are manufactured in Thailand; only the D800/E and D4 are made in Japan. Even the D800/E was originally intended for Thai production but due to damage to the plant during the flooding in Thailand, production was changed to Japan.


Nikon lenses are currently made in Japan, Thailand, and China. It may surprise some to learn that even lenses like the AF-S 70-200/4 VR, AF-S 24-120/4 VR, and AF-S 105/2.8 VR are made outside Japan (Thailand in this case).
