Amazon has a lot of  3rd party sellers and they're real good about saying that.

I bought the SD Q from amazon, search for after market and never found anything. Stated it was 'Fulfilled' by Amazon.

It was from Canada, grey market in USA. It had a problem 7 months later.Filed for Warranty and Sigma said NO, GREY Market. 250usd would be added to the repair bill.

No help from Amazon, Seller offered to try to get it repaired  in Canada if I shipped it back, Fortunately I bought the extended warranty I filed my claim and the warranty repaired my camera. Precision  Camera Repair, thru Sigma repair.

If it was me I'd send it back during the 30day return period, Amazon guarantees that.

I'd buy from a camera dealer. They will tell you up front if it's Grey Market.

I now only buy  small items from  amazon and the expensive item from retailers that don't use 3rd. party fill ins.

Good Luck.
