Back when I was in retail, I sold cameras. I had this one in-duh-vidual taht insisted on trying to work me as hard as possible for a deal. I finally offered him the camera he wanted at our wholesale price, plus 5%.
Instead, he bought it from a retailer in the US that was, even for the US, grey market.
Imagine his anger and shock when it broke down six months later... and as I had carefully explained to him when he brought it in to gloat over what a "great deal" he got... Nikon Canada refused to repair it under warranty. And then the shady place he bought it refused to help him. I was unfailingly polite to this twit as he raged at me (and I didnt even work for Nikon!) that he now had a broken and essentially unrepairable camera!
If a deal sounds too good to be true it probably is. And if you are buying anything electronic, be it a television or a camera, make certain that it is properly supported by a retailer that is authorized to sell that product in the country you are in.
