NO other camera company makes their higher end product there, they are
all still made in Japan. Olympus is really treading a thin line with
this.

I don't see any "RichA" posts on my computer since I created a rule
to delete
any messages from "RichA" and similar pests using Windows XP.

You're too stupid to even remember what you wrote. I quote
your exact words: "NO other camera company makes their
higher end product there, they are all still made in Japan."

Thailand is NOT JAPAN.
Even to ****wits like you.

Wooo Hooo. You got him John!
Oh Man, how does it feel to catch out the big RICHA? You must be so proud of
yourself, go on, run off now waving your hands wildly in the air as you head
for mommy yelling "Mommy, Mommy, I did It!"

The idea of "made in China" isn't what it used to be.

Can they make CRAP? Sure they can, But they will make anything
people want and TO THE SPECIFICATIONS they are asked to make it.

If you want a lens made, and hand-ground to some infinitesimal
fraction of perfection, that's what they'll do for you... if you want
a shoddy toy that falls apart before the next holiday season, they can
do that too.

Implying "communist china" is equal to "low quality" is a non sequitur
at best.
