I don't know. You should be able to check up on the seller with Nikon - they know who their authorized resellers are.

> The seller has sold at least 20 of these cameras in the past week w/ very positive feedback.

But (a) they may know whether or not they're dealing with an authorized reseller, and (b) even if not, they may not discover the implications of a grey market sale for months or years, if ever.

> it is impossible for me to verify if he is an authorized seller.

Just ask. And if he is an authorized reseller, he'll also tell you the name of the business, which will check out with Nikon.
