D700 has arrived
Jul 24, 2008

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.

The box looks big. Is this the one with the 24-120?

Congrats...

Please don't shoot a brick wall! Shoot some people, pets in various lighting, etc.

If you were Darth Vader II - you would throw your
new camera at this brick wall to test its durability!!!

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:

http://www.biccamera.co.jp/shoplist/index_english.html

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.
