The one that comes with the camera is made in china and is lighter.

The ones you bought stand alone from Sony stores or authorised dealers are made in japan.

Granted lighter dont always mean lousier with the way technology and manufacturing ramp up, but for this case, i'm inclined to believe it is sadly true.

Thankfully sony appears to continue to sell mij NPFW50 and the mic batches are just for the new A3/5/6K lineup.The new Alpha APS-Cs are made so that Sony can drop the prices aggressively during sales such as black friday.

right, my NP-FW50 are all made in japan.
