I could be off but I've sensed a very strong interest in all forms of photography in Asia, including traditional film. Look at the new film producing companies, the large format interest and of course the dominance of the Japanese camera manufacturers. I sold a Voightlander Bessa II with Heliar a few years ago on the auction site and fetched a good price from nearly 30 bids. All the bids save one (a Japanese bid) were from China. The camera went to Shanghai.
