Re: any disadvantage to buying Japanese lens? (FE 55)

I bought both the 55 and 35 FE from Japan; no hassles much cheaper and thank goodness no QC issue. I think that QC may be less of a problem with non-zoom non-IS lenses; and also the QC on Zeiss branded lenses seems a little better, though that's not a reliable claim...
