Re: Buying “new” lenses on eBay?

There is a lot of sensible advice on this thread. One point I would add is that if a grey market seller offers you a warranty, it might mean that they will make a manufacturer warranty claim in the country from which they sourced it. I once believed I had a fault with a Sony lens, and Sony (EU) quoted me something like £600 for the repair because it was a "grey" import (the UK, where I live was in the EU at the time). So I got the lens back from Sony(EU) and returned it to the seller; he then sent it back to Japan to make a warranty claim with Sony (Japan). Clearly that takes longer.
