Hello CR Folks!

Need an advice from you guys  regarding a used Canon 600exII-RT that im planning to buy.
Upon inspection of the product pics posted online, I can see that its "Made in China".
Searching thru the web, I can only see product images that are "Made in Japan".
Is it safe to assume that this may not be a legit product?

Thanks in advance.

Eric

Maybe get the serial number and check it with Canon.  If nobody knows, just call Canon support and they can tell you the official line on that.

If it was not a legit product they would cheat by writing  "Made in Japan" although it was made in China. It has to be a legit Canon product unfortunately...  Made in China.

Thanks everybody for taking the time to respond.

@caMARYnon - This info is a great help in my decision-making process.

@tron - Yes, you're right about that. If it's not legit, why waste by putting a "Made in China" tag. BTW, I checked my 430EXiii-RT bought from our local Canon store, and it is made in Taiwan.

"Made in Taiwan" is not the same as "Made in China"  ;D
