My first post here...

I just pulled the trigger on a new DSLR and some lenses from Abe's of Maine. I did what I thought was a exhaustive search for the best price/reputable seller combo. However, just this morning I ran across a bunch of folks having nothing but problems with them out on Photo.net http://www.photo.net/neighbor/one-subcategory?id=2 , and now I'm really concerned that I'll end up with not what I was expecting.

I purchased the following from Abe's:
- D200 18-70mm Kit
- Nikon 70-300mm ED-IF VR
- Extra Nikon EL3e battery
- Mack extended warranty

I called the sale in over the phone and specifically asked to make sure that I was getting USA and not gray market, which I was assured that I was. The sale went seamlessly and shipped the same day. I should have my stuff this Monday.

So... once my stuff shows up Monday, what things should I look for to make sure I didn't get ripped off? How can you tell if the items are USA vs. Gray market?

Please help!
