Hoping to buy a 70-200 2.8 vrii... imported or used?

I've been searching for a 70-200 2.8 vrii since I don't think I need the new version, I'd like to save the $$ and be able to buy a kit lens with whichever camera body I find.  Looks like B&H has the vrii Imported, or they have a 9+ used.  What is the deal with buying imported?  Do you not get the 5 year Nikon warranty?  If not, wouldn't it be better just to buy a 9+ used and save even more money?

I could swing purchasing the new version but just feel I dont need it.  I'm borrowing a vrii and will confirm that hopefully next week.  So how do I go about finding a new vrii or a used one I can depend on?  Plus the new version isn't compatible with my old D80 which I don't plan on getting rid of.  I'd rather have glass that works on all my cameras.

Thx.

Julie
