jim... why not call them...

makes complete sense to me - they sell greymarket lenses - and it seems you have a legitimate concern...

who knows - you may decide to buy a new grey market lens not knowing what you are really getting in the new to you used one you are asking about...

seems like a realistic thing to do...

.... uuum ...BH... thank you for taking my call - i am considering an import nikon lens... how will repairs be handled should they be needed during and after warranty....

jim this lens had to come from somewhere... could be they sold it to begin with??

i do not see this strategy as Ridiculous ...

i would have called a dealer b4 posting to a forum

You are asking B&H to spend employee time with you when you have no intention of buying from them. The lens could have just as easily come from Adorama or other competitor to B&H.
