    Dun forget tt the production workers R from Malaysia.
    Not saying tt they are worse than Singaporeans, only those in the productions will know.

    i.e.: if someone wanna spit into your packet drinks, no one else will know.

    just as long as the camera and/or lens can take good pictures
    it is a good camera/lens

    no matter where it is made in.

    I think it's very common for us to assume that developed country produced better product(it better be or else cannot justify the high pay)......but that doesn't mean less developed country will only produce louzy product......eventually it was the manufacturer to decide whether the plant in that country is capable of producing the product that comform to the specification and pass the quality control....

    Actually I am not so sure about the lens thing, I just think it is impossible for the Thailand plant to manufacturer everything....the glass, the mechanism, the processor should be supplied by some other plant from other country, eventually all are put together or assembled in Thailand.....so the final product can't be that wrong But one thing for sure is we will enjoy the labor cost saving that pass down by the manufacturer

    no need to imagine
    I got cameras and lenses
    and even a HP calculator made in Singapore
    and proud of them

    you know, it was no joke
    at one time after we got independence from UK and separated from Malaysia, everyone expected us to wither and die. no hinterland.

    it is a miracle that Singapore prospered
    we are so grateful for that

    Would made in Singapore products be cheaper than Japan made?

    Thinking of the labour costs and import costs. Not to mention import taxes and such.

    Try buying Creative products. And tell me what's their servicing like if your item goes wrong. Good luck. Of course I'm mentioning camera here.

    Very narrow minded . It isnt the country that makes the difference. It's the ppl who run the factory that make the difference. Whether it's a management that insists on stringent QC standards or what that is totally "bo chup".

    For your information Singapore use to have a camera and lenes factory base here. In fact that brand you still can find "Made in Singapore" tag items in the second hand market. And yes they are very good. The brand? "ROLLEI" Oh ya there a few lecia factories here as well but they don't make the camera and lenes here.
