Noticed it is made in the Philippines, not Japan -- not sure whether that is a factor or concern, or I just did not get a wonderful specimen. YMMV.

At one point I thought that made a difference but looking at Fuji's factory in the Philipines it looks very new and sophisticated. I have the 50mm and 23mm f2, the 23mm is an earlier version made in Japan, while the 50mm is a newer version and it's made in the Philippines. The 50mm has a nicer finish, feels better put together, and gives much sharper results. I think the Philipines is one of the better Fuji factories.
