    :wtf:

    No more Japan?

    I was looking into buying a D80 but found out it was all made in Thailand. Same with the D70/200.

    Can anyone confirm?

    Nikon = :greddy:

    Someone here on OT had/has a 70-200vr from thailand. He was teased because REAL glass comes from Japon!

    So, does this news somehow make it a bad camera?

    I'd just rather have my expensive gadgets made from Japan.

    All Nikon glass does come from Japan ... the lens was assembled in Thailand.

    All the major components are made in Japan and the bodies of the D50, D70s, and D80 were assembled and some smaller parts were made in Thailand.

    Plastic injection is done in Thailand

    Oh and Canons plastics are all made in Thailand then shipped back to Canon for assembly
