A Nikon user myself, I am not amused. Nikon has already moved the production of its mirrorless models Z6 and Z7 from its Sendai factory to Thailand. The rest of the DSLR cameras will follow in 2021. If I remember correctly, Canon retained the production of its high-end models in Japan and moved the assembly of other models to Malaysia.
Japanese publication AERAdot has reported that Nikon is ceasing camera production at its Sendai ‘Mother’ Factory and moving operations to its Thai factories as a cost-saving measure.
