My feelings on it have changed a lot over the last few years. Many of the things I used to buy that were made in the US are now made in other countries. I guess it's all part of the globalization of commerce and manufacturing. In reality, as with this 40mm lens, some of my most favorite items were made in China, Malaysia, India, Vietnam, etc. I prefer to purchase US made (Or German, UK, Canadian, etc) when possible, but when the difference in price is several hundred percent (or more), I can't justify the difference.
In this particular case, I love this 40mm 2.8. And as someone else said, if they're going to crank out stuff of this quality, in this price range, I'm all for it.
