Nikon's decision not to sell parts to non Nikon repairers is an apparent cause for concern. One wonders though whether that is just a sop to their national dealer networks. Afterall, there would not be a grey market if Nikon and other camera companies were not selling cameras to grey market wholesalers. Perhaps spare parts will become available via the same route? It would be interesting to know how the independent repairers are reacting to all this.
