The made in China S5IS's are genuine Canons. They are showing up in retail stores now too. It's simply that Canon has transfered the manufacturing to Chinese plants. I don't know the level of Canon oversight - whether these plants are actually run by Canon or Canon is simply outsourcing to Chinese companies to build the S5ISs. It would be an interesting discussion for Steve's website. Just exactly what is the relationship Canon has with these Chinese factories?
