I received my camera today. Everything works fine. It's in the normal retail box. Box had a little corner damage, which is fairly typical in these kind of deals.

for those who ordered one from this guy, and are nervous

just to make you feel a little better...

I have a USA copy on my desk, loaner from nikon.
and this gray version.
no difference what-so-ever
I fully tested the body with a host of lenses and conditions. all is well.

the firmware, it's not the original, it's newer than that, which is nice to see.
but you should update it to the latest.
there is known to be an issue with sd cards.
so please update to the latest firmware.

All well and good but my near new D5 stopped focusing properly and was useless until Nikon CA quickly repaired it for free under my USA Warrantee. If it was gray market at any price it would have been useless.

I once sent an out of warrantee USA model D4 to a local authorized repair shop. The send it to Nikon CA who adjusted instead of replaced the shutter. So that's two big cameras that would have been launguishing for repairs while they depreciated on Nikon's 2/4 year upgrade cycle.

I tend to buy the newest cameras and sell the lightly used old bodies in the Buy Sell forum. I know I get some of my money back by reselling a USA body that, even thought out of warrantee, can certainly be repaired.

Essentiall, I would be more likely to take the gray market risk with a simple lens even though Nikon USA offers a 5 year warrantee

I would avoid it if it could not be repaired under warranty, or when out of warranty. As an aside, I have a Nikon 200mm F4 AFD micro lens which is still sold but Nikon would not repair it as they said parts were no longer available.
