On the grey imports you mention you get no local Nikon warranty, VAT has usually not been paid and by the time you obey the law and pay the tax people 20% tax you do not save much, you may not get a CE certified charger and the instruction book may not be in english

Most people know by now UK prices start slightly high and discount more quickly than USA, often ending up cheaper in the UK.

An issue with the Df outside USA is the perhaps £250 for the none optional 50mm f1.8 included in the price.

My forecast is within about 6 months the UK price without the lens will be around £2,000. Then the main decision will be is the price premium worth it compared to whatever the street price of the D610 has fallen to.

Digressing I needed the 80-400 AF-s but waited until the UK street price fell from £2,599 to £2,099 after a few months. It is now even lower in price at £1,999.

Great images are often of good subjects.
If they are great images does what lens, body or technique was used matter more than the skill of the photographer?
