Gray market OK for teleconverter?
Feb 24, 2010

I typically wouldn't buy a gray market product because of the warranty limitation (1 yr vs 5 yrs) however, I'm thinking about it for a Nikon 1.4x teleconverter. No moving parts, not much in the way of electronics, not many parts- very simple. It seems like a good candidate for gray market. The price is $349 vs. $429 on B&H.

Am I being penny wise and pound foolish?
