If you try to locate a Nikon Authorized Repair Station through the Nikon USA website you must fill in the model of body or lens that you want repaired. Most of the Pro bodies and Pro lenses are listed that Only Nikon Service is Athorized to repair. This makes purchasing Gray Market gear questionable at best. With the new policy on parts, the question becomes will Nikon continue to provide parts to the Authorized Service Stations for gear that they say must be serviced at Nikon Service Only. Maybe the Authorized Service Stations can get the parts directly from Nikon Japan and don't rely on Nikon USA. I don't know. Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
