6Ave is selling the Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 lens for $1669 through Amazon.com.  Would you buy a lens from them?

Gray market or USA lens? It would depend on who is guaranteeing the warrantee.

With B&H I know what I am getting, USA versus Import, and if I have a problem with the lens I have 30 days to return it for a full refund. I also trust Berger Bros. and Adorama and Samys and Roberts. The rest are not places where I would risk my money for a lens.

I have purchased many Nikon items from J&R.  They are an official Nikon dealer.

Never ask a man where he's from. If he is from Texas, he'll tell you. Otherwise, don't embarrass him.

I will also add Hunt's to that list. I resently met they guys at a Nature Photography expo and they have given grate service on the three orders I've placed with them since. My last order was for a camera bag and I was asking if he thought a list of equipments would fit in the bag. His response was let me go and test fit that equipment in the bag and I'll call you back. 15 minutes later he called back with the answer. He also was happy to try a second bag and called back with and answer and a sales price. Needless to say I purchased the bag.

Oh yea, a day later I got a personal email from the manager asking how my experience was.
