Gray Market 105mm F2 DC or not?
4 months ago

I'm thinking about buying one of these and see B&H has a gray market version for $200 less (and about the same as what ebay used versions seem to go for). Normally I wouldn't consider this (no warranty I suppose?) but given this lens has no VR and no focus motor, am I really taking much of a risk? I may wait and see if one shows up at KEH but if not, $900 rather than almost $1100 is tempting to risk it.
