I saw DFA100 macro (old version) - made in Taiwan. It's strange, but I really saw such lens. I had heard about M and A lenses made in Taiwan.

Vietnam is 1994
Philippines is 1987 with new production facilities through the 1990s

Thank you, your move makes sense.

I wish I had thought of placing it here in the first place.
