none of the vortex products are made in japan,all vortex optics are made in china, as are the zen ray line.china has a few optics factories that have stepped up their quality and manufacturing control and are now making some decent binos and scopes.so far the highest quality chinese optics i've seen is vanguard.their endeavor ed binos are the clearest,brightest i've owned priced under 300.00. but all those vortex scopes everyone is excited about and buying are all made in china.
