Pardon the correction, but I think you meant FTC (Federal Trade Commission), not FCC (Federal Communications Commission), but otherwise I agree with your post and Jon's above about why in the U.S. at least USA lenses are more desired/desirable than grey market lenses.

That said, I have heard that Nikon authorized service centers in the U.S. are willing to work on grey market items for a fee, even if Nikon factory service (NY and California) will not touch them with a 10-foot pole. As for myself, I try to buy USA lenses even when buying second-hand, just to avoid hassles.
