Protests halt Canon production in China

Canon could be facing a costly drop in production of both its digital cameras and laser printers, following reports that widespread protests in China have forced it close most of its factories in that country. It's a similar story at Panasonic, which is said to have had one of its plants "sabotaged" by Chinese workers. The anti-Japan protests concern the status of disputed islands in the East China Sea and were triggered by the Japanese government's move to purchase some of the land in question

Don't know if the main EOS plants are in China or Japan (I would guess China) but this can't be good with them just trying to ramp up 6D production.

China isn't as cheap as it used to be, and getting too risky besides. They should totally move production here. :D

My 7D is made in Japan. Maybe this will affect the Rebels only.

:P No, because the japs bought some contested islands, and the Chinese government has been teaching anti-Japanese sentiment for generations. (maybe something to do with the whole conquering attempt thing).
