    Why is it the questions of where a lens is made keeps popping up? Even if it is made in Malaysia, it is still made by Canon! So what's the fuss!

    i have the 18-200 but its made in japan. bought last year as a 50d kitlens

    made in msia pun okaylah, my 50 1,8 is made in msia, it still produces great pictures for a 300 ringgit lens

    i think in the future more lenses will be made locally, hopefully be cheaper too...

    What's wrong if it is made in Malaysia? We make excellent Canon lens (50mm, 18-200mm & 55-250mm)

    as long its a good lens, produce decent IQ and price is ok whose really care ? Just like lasttime before existence if 18-200 IS and 55-250 IS , ppl still consider Sigma 18-200 OS and Tamron/Sigma 70-300 a great lens...

    hahaha ya lah bro. recently there was a thread banging the 50 1.8 just cos its made in msia... all of a sudden we all became super patriotic

    i think the answer to the initial question is a simple 'yes'.

    Yap.. i guess it is a simple answer of yes and no.. I see alot of ppl take offense on this matter when we say "made in malaysia"... I guess this arise from PROTON.. haih~~

    anyway i also hope other lens were to be made in m'sia, hope it would be cheap!! and plus... servicing will not be a problem.. cz there are parts.. M'sia product more or less better than those of china..except it is SUPER cheap..

    my 2 cents!!

    yeah, that almost the price that i quoted by canon.
    Sometimes i do feel Canon really make heap of profit, retail 3k lens also don't come with hood like nikon or other 3rd party lens. Original hood sell over RM250, what a rip off.

    i dont think so tho. if you add the hood price with the lens, the price is close to nikon that comes with hood as well.

    3rd party well, its cheap if you compare with the brands manufacturer.
