Dont do it- I just saw people buying imported D7000's on ebay. Little they know that those $100 in savings will later bring headaches. Yes, all it takes a drop on a hard floor surface and it doesn't matter how well you take care of your dslr. Even bad boy KR says dont do it at all cost. There is another reason why BH photo and Adorama don't sell imported dslr but they do lenses. Dslr are more complex with all the electronics- they are basically a computer. The lenses are not far behind with afs and vr. Just get all USA if you can for longevity or end up paying thru the nore sending it overseas.
