I've been told that cameras don't grow on plants. Bunnies that live on the moon send them by stork.

I think that reports after the Japanese nuclear whoopsy indicated that there are Canon glass
factories in Japan.

However, it is possible that the 1DX could be coming from the moon.
.

No, the 1dx is coming from Middle Earth by FrodoEX.

If you really want to try to track down the manufacturing, the list starts at http://www.canon.com/corp/list03.html.  There are four partners/subsidiaries in Japan and one each in China, Malaysia and Singapore.   Canon was part of the now defunct Fuyo Keiretsu which would give a hint towards part suppliers.
7D, EOS M, S95, 40D, S40, 10S, ...
EF 70-200 f4.0 L, EF 17-40 f4.0 L, EF 40mm f2.8, EF 28-135,  Sigma 30mm f1.4 EX, ....

When I worked in Japan (at a different company) there was a Canon factory near us on the Tokyo periphery. I remember meeting a foreigner who worked at the factory and having a nice chat on the train. Unusual because Japan hires few outsiders.


Maybe I should try to look him up and ask about the 1DX.
