Strike two in the camera industry.

First off our thoughts go out to the people of Thailand.  We hope they are well and have a swift recovery.

It looks like  another set back for this industry.  Remember earlier this year when the earth quake in Japan.  That really hurt the production in this industry.  Looks like over the weekend strike two happened.  Flooding all over Thailand caused both Canon and Nikon to shut down some factories.  Even Honda had some trouble too.

This once again will effect the availability of product and parts for repair.  Your favorite toys may possibly take a little bit longer to get in.  Repairs have recently have been sitting at 4 weeks.  Parts availability  may put repairs back to 6-8 weeks.

I hope i may be wrong, but i just want to put this out there.  Personally i do not like too many surprises.
