The prices for the D700 USA body are from 2400 to 3000, for the gray one is around 1600. We know that the gray cameras are imported. I contacted the wholesale dealers/exporters in China, They asked for from 500usd to 885usd. The amount of 885 makes sense,but 500 or 600 are dirt cheap. Anyway nobody will buy it because they only send the camera to you after receiving cash payment thru Western Union, Moneygram or Bank transfer. Only God knows if they will send it to you or what they will send. I also found out that there are authorized Nikon dealers in India, Malaysia sell the d700 body for 3000usd. Does anyone know where the gray market cameras sold in NY come from? If you can buy it really cheap and securely, it is worth taking risk knowing that Nikon will not repair it.
