    Same sentiments with LKM, $60 savings is not savings.

    Shop might close down. Distributor unlikely to close down.

    Unless the difference in prices can cover a 1st repair. Otherwise... maybe not worth it.

    You might want to consider grey set if you like me. Never use waranty card (touch wood... touch wood) .

    I have a good feeling that if you buy from the right person, you can get a local set w/warranty and save the $60 at the same time. Perhaps even more.

    If you shop around, grey sets sold by shops (I assuming you're comparing to a shop) aren't really that cheap. Grey sets brought in by people, different issue.

    Else as longkangman suggested, go 2nd hand. Some still have warranties.

    I can't give you exact names cos I don't watch nikon prices, but the trend is the same for popular brands.
