I own two flashes: the SB600 (made in China) and SB800 (made in Japan), and the there is a clear diffence in the fit and finish. I've handled made in China lenses (the only one I own is the AF 50/1.8D), and there is a clear difference in the workmanship. Manufacturers turn to China for cheap mass-produced output, not for quality, and it shows. Miele, the superb German vacuum company, now makes their low-end products in China, and I spotted them from a mile away. And guess what: the prices did not go down. That is the game.

But you are right, there are other reasons to avoid Made in China. If you make it a personal rule not to go there, unless absolutely necessary, you find yourself buying much fewer material goods, and the ones you do buy tend to be necessary and long-lasting goods. Paradoxically, I actually save money by not buying from China, whenever I can.
