I knew there was something wrong here. My wife insisted on finding me a D7000, body only (I have more than enough lenses), by Christmas. We looked at all the big vendors and they had none. Then she found a link off of DPReview.com for a Brooklyn, NY firm called, "Best Price Electronics". I told her that I didn't feel good about this unheard of vendor, and that I was more than content to wait until we could buy a unit from Berger-Bros or Canoga Camera or Samy's or BH Photo or Adorama or...

My D7000 arrived a couple of days before Christmas. Hmmm, everything seems to be in order, I guess I was wrong to doubt that company. Last night I was reading Ken Rockwell.com and he warns that we make sure our camera's are US models. We can tell if the box says, "D7000 (US)". Hmmm, I wonder what my box says? "D7000 (KR)" WHAT!?!

I knew it....

So what now? What exactly does this mean? My camera is not covered by any Nikon warranty? What are the implications of my situation if the camera ever needs repair? Do I have to contact Nikon South Korea if I have any issues?
