Default Nikon 5400 Assembled Where?

Read or heard somewhere that Nikon 5400 assembled in
Korea are not as quality built as assembled in Japan
Anything to this?
And other than the hot shoe for flash indoor pictures, Will the
4300 take just as good pictures?? I'm not a professional but want
the best pictures I can take without a lot of fiddling around.
Maybe someday I'll learn all of the right things to do so I can
use all of the manual controls.


PS I do have an SB 25 flash so this is why I'm leaning to 5400

I've contacted Nikon, several suppliers, and they all tell me that this is not true. I don't think that a company like Nikon would risk losing their name by having their product manufactured "not as good" in a different country, all parts are the same no matter where they are assembled. I have a coolpix 5400 made in korea and have had no problems with it so far except for the low light focusing problem everyone is talking about, but when i turn autofocus off, everything works perfectly! I love this camera, one of the best purchases I have ever made!

Hope this helps.
