How many of you buy Japanese cameras and lenses ?, because I'm old enough to remember a time when all the same sort of thing people are now saying about Chinese manufactured goods were been said about Japanese products when in fact they could make them better,cheaper, more reliable, and they swept the World with them. The great irony is the biggest communist country in the World is out- capitalisting the capitalists, patriotism is one thing but you can't ignore the facts.
So true. And it should be pointed out that the Chinese can and do make world-class products, when they want to. It comes down to what the buyer wants, specify crap and that's what they'll deliver.
