Nikon’s flagship factory in Sendai, Japan, assembles all of Nikon’s current pro-level bodies, from the D700 (discontinued in Japan, but still to be sold elsewhere) and D3X to the brand new D4 and D800/D800e. It also assembles every single F6 film SLR, the production line of which is staffed by two, yes two, people. This admittedly means only turning out 50 a month, but it’s still a big responsibility for just two people.
