"I just really bugs me when they go "Voigtländer Germany" on the Cosina
A name is great and it's great to be able to buy it perhaps. I'll sell you
title if you want but this is just DECEPTION.
And there are stronger words for deception one could use if ones blood was
(Which mine ain't) Fraud?
"One that defrauds; a cheat. B. One who assumes a false pose; an impostor.
[Middle English fraude, from Old French, from Latin fraus, fraud-.]"
A piece of trickery; a trick.  Yes!! a benign piece of happy trickery.
Trick or treat!?
Mark Rabiner"

	Sort of like the Leica stuff 'assembled in Portugal' and stamped
'made in Germany'.  I wonder why Leica does this.
