Come on, Ted, sometimes the German/Canadian question has a real place in a 
purchasing decision.  For example, when I bought a new 75/1.4 recently, I 
made sure I got a Canadian one -- I had no interest in experiencing any 
teething problems the still-quite-new German production run might be having, 
and I wasn't sure if whatever they'd changed to lighten the puppy up had any 
influence on sturdiness.
