Nikon DSLR plant in Northern Japan shuts down due to earthquake


     I found out today that the factory which Nikon uses to build its higher
end digital SLR’s in Sendai has been shut down due to earthquake/tsunami
damage, no word when they expect to begin production again.
Prices have begun to increase due to possible shortages. If you were
in the market for a D700, D3s, or D3x. Buy now or you could face a wait.
