Yes, exactly. Sorry for my poor wording. On the inside of the lens barrel, it is written on the 43 :

Where on the 77 and 31, it is on the outside of the lens barrel. But was interested, if they also stated "Made in Japan".

As production is stopping from the old factory in Japan, then we will see it; from the new batch of lenses coming from a factory in another country.
Well, the FA50/1.4 is assembled in Vietnam now, and even has Hoya name on the box:

I've had both, but only keep the FA31.
I should have listened to your advice before my acquisition of Fa* 24mm. We came to the same conclusion
