Hi Cesar,

My advice is to champion the workmen and women of your country, as I do when
some dumb ass comes on about "Leica products made in Canada!" Not as good as
made in Germany! It's a crock and demeaning to the country and it's people.

It's a whole new ball game these days about where products are made, money -
profit ratio!  And everything to do with "how much can we get it made for in
whatever country is chosen" and maintain the quality expected of the
product?

As I stated in a previous post, "If a Leica could be assembled in the middle
of the Sahara by sand fleas for the offering of one body a day feeding,
Leica's would be made there ! Sure as hell make for higher profit line ! ;-)
