Wednesday 3rd Mar '04:
Read in local newspaper (Bangkok Post) of a trip to the Thailand Nikon factory by a small group of local journalists to view the manufacture of the D70 which is made in Thailand and for which Nikon are projecting target sales of 800,000 units in 1st year
Thursday 4th Mar '04
Called local supplier in Bangkok to enquire re availability: was told all units had been removed from sale and returned to the factory due to a problem with the firmware. Surely Nikon would test, test and test again before making the model available for general release, or is Asia the 'testing ground'? Either way, it is worrying.
