TG-5, where is it made?
in the last 9 years I've purchased 8 SW/tough cameras... mostly Olympus and mostly made in China. But a glaring correlation has shown between place of manufacture and well a tough camera will do with me. Namely the 2 cameras that I bought that were made in Indonesia faired very poorly (one not really waterproof and the other, my most recent died randomly... twice the original and a refurbished replacement after the original was returned repaired) while the others that were made in china faired much better 3 had taken quite a bit of abuse over an average life span of 16 months of ownership. + 1 stolen and 1 lost. I am considering the purchase of a TG-5 but if it was made in Indonesia I might not purchase a new tough camera or look to a different brand.
your information would be much appreciated
