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.

robin surely you jest....

nobody has bought anything yet..

the OP may very well decide to go new greymarket... who knows...

others may want new grey market lenses

all regardless have to do with issues of service - so call the biggies - get some answers

never said i would never consider using BH... i use adorama for some things now...

suggesting we not call a HUGE nikon retailler asking about warranty issues? i think the bigger the company the better on this issue - as to tying up employees of BH... asking about details of a potential revenue stream for them.... come on...

read your post and see how silly this looks...

abuse of retailer???

not even close - now if i bought a lens - took holiday used it sent it back with no explination... different story..

a great many folks may be inclined to make a purchase by way of BH... based on info gathered from conversations with BH... or other BIG retailer

you are not suggesting we rely on crap we scrape out of forms - or godforbid - we go local retailer forinfo - then go purchase at BH???

sorry just not seeing any value in your post for the first time...
