Hi Everyone,

Does the fact that the Nikon F80 is not made in Japn , not worry some of you ?

This will be my first SLR, and I'm excited,...but a little worried too.

I am waiting to get mine (as soon as they come in) and in the mean while reading a lot on the internet about it.

Are the extra features, which are normaly found on a higher end pro camera, included in the F80 at the cost of making it outside Japan ? At the cost of quality ??

The Japan models vs. other models made elseware varies a great deal. My Father bought a Canon "elph II" and he was not going to buy it since they showed him one made in Tiwan (or elseware I don't remember), but when he went to another shop they showed him one from Japan and he was amazed at the difference in Quality.

Were there any quality comparison tests made between SLRs made in Japan vs. elsware ???

Has NIKON made any other cameras not in Japan before ?

Let me know...
