Not likely. The seller offers a warranty, but who knows what that means.

Still, by the time this camera starts breaking down, independent repair shops might be allowed to operate on them.

I bought a d750 through one of these places for $1300. Arrived dead. They were impossible to deal with. I sent back the camera and weeks later still no refund or replacement. Luckily I paid with my credit card and they refunded my money. Bought one through BH and I'm glad I did.

This seller has near 100% positive feedback for 71,385 transactions so I'm guessing they wont be one of those places

i've heard report of card trouble and some premature death. i would rather pay a little more for the warranty as i don't really trust nikon QA. used it once on my d750 ("err") and the service was great

Card trouble is just firmware

Bought 2 x SB910s from this seller 2 years ago. No problems. I don't think Nikon USA will repair this but hope they will add D500 to their list later
https://www.nikonusa.com/en/service-and-support/nikon-authorized-repair-list.page
Otherwise, I will have to try to find independent repair shop. I think it still worth it for $500 different. Just bought one myself.

No, but they might add them to their list of approved third party repair centers sometime down the road like they did with the D810 for example. Some third party shops can also help you regardless depending on what needs to be fixed - it's the rigs, tooling, and training that they need from Nikon to repair or adjust certain things. They've basically valued the warranty at $500. I think it's a pretty good deal given that cameras are overall extremely reliable, and I have not once in over 10 years experienced a single problem with one of my Nikon bodies. If it wasn't in USD I would pick one up

I am switching to Nikon from Canon. While this is tempting the warranty scares me.

I have a D500 for sale as well though! It's US and still has paper work and all boxing! I'm trying to go to a D810. D500 is good for all the bells and whistles, but for me I should've kept my D810. That's just me though, I'm sure others think otherwise.

You can buy them from Canada for $1800 USD right now, and you get a 2-year Nikon warranty (double that of the USA). Brings the price of a warranty down to $300, and doubles the length.

I was unaware of this. I think I may officially make the switch. Thank you

You're welcome. Just be aware that although the warranty is completely valid, it has to go to Nikon Canada for servicing, in the very unlikely event that is required. It makes little difference since you most likely would have to ship it anyway even within the USA, and the Canadian retailers will help you out with this. Additionally, Nikon USA will still service the camera (for a fee) both during and after the warranty period. The remote possibility of a very minor shipping inconvenience is heavily outweighed by the cost savings and double warranty, in my opinion. Also, many report not having to pay state tax on Canadian sourced cameras, which depending on where you live could save you another little chunk of change.
