Just an example, sure it is different Mercedes Benz as well as lenses. I saw garbage tracks made by Benz too. . If I will spend lots $ for good MB coupe, I wouldnt buy one made in Vietnam or Nigeria So, technically my question is - are you ready to spend more than $200 for Canon made non in Japan? Also parts doesnt count, final assembly.
