Re: Made in Japan is better.

mine has wobble at around 40mm.  Own the lens for 6 months. For a pro lens  i am a little disappointed.   But happy with the optical results.

maybe we can start a poll. Mine 12-40 pro made in Vietnam has the wobble problem.

Wonder if made in Japan 12-40 pro is wobble less.

There's no made in japan 12-40 pro. Only china and recently vietnam.

I've seen older posts from back in 2015-2016, people claiming their china made 12-40 have no wobble even at 40mm.

But yes there are copies with no wobble. And a lot of copies with varying wobble. Some have wobble only at 40mm. My copy wobbles from 12 to 40. There's around 1mm of wobble at 12mm and around 2mm of wobbling at 40mm.

I contacted the Olympus european repair centre and they told me it's normal. So I didn't send them my copy, since there's a good chance it will be roughly handled during shipping and adding to the problems, yet with no guarantee for repair.
