I doubt if any of these company's get all there lenses across there lines from a single source. For that matter from one end to the other of any particular scope.   Getting this information out of them will be even harder. Just finding out where they are assembled is usually classified as company secrets.

+1, Alot of glass is coming out of Japan and the Phillipines. Nothing wrong with that, some of it is very good optically. In the end, the specs the glass is ground to is what will make the difference, not what country it came from.
