Would those of you who have already purchased one of the new Panasonic G7's please take a look at the little sticker on the underside of the camera body and advise if any of these have been built in Japan. You may well ask why I am interested to know this. As a traveller, currently in Europe, I am about to upgrade from a G1 (Built in Japan) which has served me faithfully for six years, to (perhaps) the G7. However, cameras do not carry a worldwide warranty/guarantee and have to be returned to the continent of their purchase for repair should anything fail. Most of us do not have the sort of consumer protection that folk in the United States have. We cannot simply walk back into a store and hand a used camera back over the counter and walk out with a new one. For those of us living in far flung places, Made in Japan carries far more weight than Made in China (despite the millions of Apple smartphones that are produced there).
