D700 has arrived
Got a call from the local Biccamera this morning to tell me I could pick up the D700 a day earlier than expected!
Have unpacked and checked it over (Nikon's packaging has become considerably greener over the years) but I have no time to take any test photos other than the obvious shots of views out of windows etc. I will find a suitable brick wall to test it out tomorrow.
as of 5 minutes ago. They still show the body only as not yet available
congrats! hope you can sleep tonight:) I just purchased one tonight. Arrives this Friday. best.. dj

'Digital is fun;
Film is photography'
Hmm -- how did you determine that?
Reason why I ask is because the original poster is in Japan. So likely he got the Japanese version released on the 25th (in Japan, some 1/2 day ahead of the U.S.).
Bic Camera is a Japanese camera retailer:
Grey market is just simply a camera that was not meant to be sold in a particular country, AND wasn't bought by someone on an overseas trip with original receipt in possession.
In a nutshell, I'm not seeing any indications that this was a grey market purchase.
