 Lets get the facts out, so those who don't know will. The R3/4/5/6/7
 cameras were all built with Minolta chassis, and a few parts inside (like
 the wind mechanism). But they were modified and the innards mostly designed
 by Leica. The shutter, prism, metering system, and many other parts were
 designed by Leica, and built by Leica in Portugal.

 Eric -- That really did need saying to finally be the definative word on the
 subject of quality control regardless of where something is made.  My IBM
 computer was made in Thailand,  my Honda in the US, my Wetzlar IIIg made
 in Canada and my Italian Perelli's in Germany.
 Eric - You are back in my good graces and I wish you would repeat the above
 facts regularily to end this silly  Canada, Wetzlar, Portugal, Solms & Japan
