Gray Market? Am I missing the part where they talk about the warranty. Does this camera have a full US warranty or is this a Gray market equipment?

I've been looking for the same information. I don't believe that Amazon deals in gray market products but have no way of knowing for sure. Gray market is bad news in Nikon products because NikonUSA will not repair a gray market camera (or lens) under any circumstances.

I appreciate your point with regard to buying gray to save a few bucks. I wouldn't knowingly do that and that is why I bought my D7000 from Amazon. When I went to register the equipment online at Nikon.com, it came up flagged as "gray market". That surprised me a bunch. Little did I know that Amazon was selling gray market equipment. I'm not sure how to find that out ahead of time. Buyer beware!!

Found this discussion via Google. I purchased a Canon BG-E2N battery grip a few months ago. It arrived with an international warranty card--gray market. I was incensed by the lack of disclosure by Amazon (have not had problems with any other products), and returned the item. I have no quarrel at all with a functional gray market, but I expect FULL disclosure from vendors before the purchase.

"many gray market retailers,advertise "u.s. warranties" with their products.am i thinking correctly here?"

They advertise U.S. warranties, but whose? I'll bet not it's not from Nikon or Canon. More likely than not they'll outsource it to some repair shop where you may get if fixed or not, where you may get your item back or not. For an expensive lens ($1000+), there's no way I'm going to take a chance with a gray market lens to save maybe 10%.
