It's very tempting at that price. The only thing that makes me pause is the 90 day labor warranty.

I'm looking at the eBay listing on my phone now. I'm pretty sure I looked at it last night on my laptop and it said 90 days labor, one year parts in house.

Could somebody with a computer look at the warrantee and verify my information is correct please.

Anyone here purchased gray market gear before? This looks like a smoking deal....just concerned about if your camera has problems in the future.

Please post grey market stories, good and bad, here. I'm undecided what to do....

Gray market products are legit. They're dentical to the regular retail models. They only differ in their intended distributive chain.

They should have the same manufacturer warranty, but in the event you need to exercise that warranty, you'll likely need to do that in the other country (ie, a possible PITA).

The better unauthorized dealers selling gray market gear will match the manufacturer warranty. There are threads here about that. I personally would steer clear of the ones offering anything less.

Here's an excerpt from the FAQ we recently wrote about imports (external link):

Do I get a Canon USA Warranty?

The official answer is no, Canon USA will only service a USA model camera bought at an authorized dealer. This is why the store often provides a 1 year store warranty, equivalent to the warranty provided by Canon USA.

The answer on the street is: Canon USA will service anything — USA model or grey market — provided you have a receipt showing you purchased it within the last year. Canon stands behind their products. They’ll never admit this policy in writing though, so it can be subject to change at any time and without warning; you should be comfortable with the chance you may need to rely on the store warranty, should Canon USA change their policy within the year.

After one year, your camera is out-of-warranty, and you have to pay for service (just like any other camera, authorized dealer or not). Canon will gladly accept grey market items for paid service, unlike Nikon, which refuses to repair a grey market body, even if you’re paying them.

This should be a sticky on this thread!!!
