I see - Nikon doesn't have a dual assembly line - just a single line and products are sold to Nikon USA and other companies in the country of manufacture who sell directly to companies in the USA. Is this correct? I'm old, so bear with me please.
If these items are identical, why is there some reluctance to buy top dollar gray products? The warranty is reduced for the gray products but companies like Adorama will give the same guarantee as the manufacturer.
Should I go with gray products or stick with Nikon USA?
