new DA 18-270 is made in china. This pic is from lens review found this site. Much money to pay for china lens (and quality)...
Makes no difference where it's made, as long as a standard of quality is maintained. There's a huge difference between some no-name bargain basement operation and a company like Tamron or Pentax. Plenty of excellent quality products are made in China nowadays. A lot of the Nikon stuff, for instance.

There was a time when Japanese products were universally thought of as crap. They brought up their quality standards, and today they make some of the highest end products in the world. China's economy is exploding, and the same thing is happening there. Basically, China is the new Japan.
