Thanks for the thoughts.

i got the following response from Nikon UK

Thank you for contacting Nikon Customer Support.

In reply to your question, yes we do repair grey imports as long as they are genuine Nikon Products that have been imported to the European market. You will be quoted for the repair.

i think the answer is also a but grey, but i'll go with it!

I wonder if the wording of the answer has something to do with Brexit.  I.e., when the UK was part of the EU, imports to the UK through EU countries might have been "non-grey".  Now they are "grey", but there's still the issue of not hanging pre-Brexit customers out to dry.  So Nikon UK will service "official Nikon EU" cameras that Nikon UK would otherwise consider to be "grey".  But they might not service "grey" imports from East Asia.

The other possibility is that Nikon UK is actually willing to fix grey imports from anywhere, as long as you pay the tab.  This would be a different (and more welcome) policy than the one reportedly followed by Nikon USA.

No answers here, only more questions.
