    So true. And many factories in Japan have so many foreign workers working at the 3rd world wages!

    I think that 'made' and 'manufactured' are quite distinct in product laws.

    'Made' can mean assembled, but 'manufactured' means produced.

    I used to work for a car parts factory that sourced all its products from overseas but put them in "made in the UK" boxes as there was a minimal amount of assembly done in the UK.

    So, for Leica, it may be "manufactured in Portugal" and "made in Germany".

    For many individuals, the country of origin has a direct effect on their perception of quality.

    This thread has oodles of bigotry seeping at the seams and between the lines. Wonderful species we are.

    Generally speaking, in Japan, people tend to get obsessed with anything that says "German." I think it has a lot to do with Japan's pre-WW2 history...
