Thailand was given as the answer several times. You wrote "The D7000 is not made in China. If it were, I would not buy it." and I agree you are 100% entitled to your opinion. China has a horrific track record on human rights issues and the manual part of their workforce. My only point (as well as Stan's and others) is simply if you choose to not buy anything Chinese you don't have any modern electronics in your place. Even if the D7000 were assembled in Japan, I will bet you a large portion of the inner workings still were assembled in China. It's just economics. Look at all the features in the D7000 for just over a grand.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I would certainly not want everyone to share mine. All I am saying is at this point in our history I am not sure you can own / buy stuff that doesn't have some Chinese parts in it. And if you are willing to accept China on the inside, what's the big deal about the final step (assembly) taking place in China. It's not like Thailand has some moral superior high ground on human rights and working conditions.
