Where do gray market cameras and lenses actually come from?
1

Places like Abe’s of Main and E-infinity have unlimited supplies of brand new Nikon cameras and lenses. I cannot imagine that Nikon is unaware of this, or is unable to stop it. How does the gray market work? Why does Nikon keep allowing it? What do they get out of it when E-Infinity sells hundreds of brand new Nikon cameras and lenses without Nikon warranties at prices that undercut authorized dealers? How do the cameras and lenses actually get to those dealers? Surely they are shipped directly from Nikon factories?
Thanks.
