    Hi,
    I know other Nikon camera like S610 is made in Indonesia.
    I am interested in S620. I heard it is made in China. Is it true?
    I am also little afraid of buying it through online as there are many copies.
    Is there a way I can tell whether this is a copy?
    If you don’t mind, can you share which part is made in Japan and which part is not? Then where is it made?

    Thanks much.
