Mr. van Hoegh stated his opinion of plastic and aluminum cameras and yes, the camera is made in China. Or was the racist slur against people in Chicago?
And you could never accuse me of xenophobia. I work in a group of engineers where I am the only native born American. Couple of Chinese, a couple of Vietnamese, a Russian, and my boss is Pakistani. Great working with them all.
Personally, it doesn't look like a bad camera. Not built like a Deardorff but then again, what is?
