Hi to all the bros who own a FZ5....Mind if you share where is your cam made in? Japan, China or others? I am going to buy a FZ5 by this weekend and I heard from dpreview that some cameras made in China were found to be defective and were banned from sales. (http://www.interfax.cn/showfeature.asp?aid=8449&slug=SONY) Seems that Sony cameras are the most affected. Just wanna double check the FZ5 is not made there....;p

I am hoping to upgrade my F-707 to a F-717. But I also like the ultrazoom of the FZ5. Never had an ultrazoom before so thought I should try ;)

And I know the FZ5 is good!
