Re: China asks Nikon to halt all D600 sales

There's a much bigger story here than China's response to Nikon's debacle. There's some good reading about China's responses to foreign investments and sales within the border. Read about the Chinese car industry and their response to foreign automakers. It's pretty fascinating. Also with corporations like Apple, etc..

I'm not condoning Nikon's behavior with the D600 (and I'm a D600 owner), but Nikon is not in trouble because of Chinese perceptions of Nikon specifically. Sure it will affect sales but there's another issue going on here.....

Funny that they should go after Nikon, who do quite a lot of manufacturing in China, rather than one of the other Japanese camera manufacturers who don't manufacture very much there...

I know China make their own autos, smartphones, etc. and running down foreign competition may help protect or boost sales of products made by Chinese companies - but is there any significant Chinese camera maker?
