Re: NEX 7 kit lens Made in Japan?

Not here,

  • My black 1855 says Thailand.

  • Both silver 1855 versions say Thailand.

  • E16 says Thailand.

  • Both VCL adapters say Japan.

  • E24 says Japan.

  • E30 says China.

  • E50 says China.

  • 18200 says China.

  • A mount lenses say China.

I have three identical kit zooms, performance wise.
They are sharp, work as advertised, and match online reviews.

In fact, this applies to all lenses that I have.

I had heard that some of the kit lenses shipped with the 7 Kit were made in Japan. I mentioned this to a local Sony Rep and he was not aware of it. When my kit arrived, I looked at the lens and, sure enough, it was made in Japan.

Are all Kit lenses from Japan or are some from Thailand?

If so, is there any difference between the two versions?
