As I considered starting a ML system, Nikon, my dslr system, left Brazil. I waited a bit, but more and more felt it would make sense to go with either Canon or Sony, as both had good presence in the country, Sony a major player in cameras, video, TV sets, games, etc.

They have just announced they are moving out, including closing a plant that makes TV sets in Manaus, a free-commerce zone.

Brazil’s economic and political situation is a total shame, but we are not the only such country in the Americas, and I include NA in that list.

Anyway, practical issue, it seems it’ll be Canon. Not nice not to have choices.

Really sorry to hear that is happening.  With all that is happening to lose more jobs is hard.
