I would say at least 90% of the P&S are made in China.
Now a days only the very top models are made in Japan.

Stuff made in China does not mean low quality. Just like everywhere else, if you want quality, you have to pay more for it. There are lots of very fine quality products made in China. I think the XZ-1 is mighty fine, and I own lots of cameras, some many times more expensive than the XZ-1. The quality and workmanship of the XZ-1 is on par with Japan made cameras.

hmm that makes me wonder what other brands/models are made in china.

I have to disagree with you: my 2 years old Canon SX210IS was made in Japan and my one year old Olympus SP-800UZ in Indonesia and neither are top model cameras. Otherwise you're quite right about chinese products.
