Yesterday I posted a question in the Speedlight forum but did not receive a response for part of my query. Maybe someone here can help me out. Due to unavailability of the SB-80DX USA version, I am considering the option of purchasing the import market unit from B&H. I have a couple of concerns and will be grateful if anyone can comment on known problems/issues with a gray unit compared to the USA version:

1. Does it deviate in functionality, features, physical appearance or included accessories?
2. Is the printed info. on the back of the unit/LCD display in English or some foreign language?
3. Does the LCD display distances in feet or meters?
4. Does it come with an English instruction manual?
5. Any compatibility issues, specifically with the D100?
6. Is there anything whatsoever to be concerned about (besides absence of Nikon, Inc. warranty) when buying this gray?
