First I'll begin by apologizing to all who may be thinking "Ug, Carl will NOT let this drop!" I'm OCD, what can I say?

I just placed an order at US1Photo.com for a D300 body @ $1,499.99 w/ free shipping. I'll update this thread as the order progresses so we have (hopefully) another positive experience with this store. The story so far:

A. Whether US1Photo.com is an authorized dealer or not is irrelevant according to "Justin" and "Carolyn" at 800-NIKONUX "Presales" department. Both have confirmed that as long as the camera is 1 a USA model (look for "D300(u)" above the bar code, NOT a serial beginning with "3" according to Carolyn) and 2 has a receipt that indicates purchase from a retail business (as opposed to an individual), the warranty is in full effect.

B. I called US1Photo (877-300-5070) and spoke to someone in sales (didn't get his name). I said "I'm about to order a D300 from your website at $1,4999.99. I have just one question before I order: is it a Nikon USA warranty model or grey market?" (It says so on their site, but I figured what the heck). The guy on the other line said "It's Nikon USA, not grey market." When I said "OK, thanks for your help" he replied "No problem, have a nice day." No upsell attempt at all (perhaps because I said that I was ordering online).

So far, everything has proceeded like I would expect from any retailer. I will wait to see if I get a call trying to upsell or just a shipping confirmation at a later date. I'll update about any and everything that happens.

This is my Nikon. There are many like it, but this one is mine!
