    I would go for the grey set and use the extra money to buy other stuff.

    Previously my 420EX was also bought grey. Didn't failed on me once when it was used for over a year.

    I'll go for grey if the difference is huge. $450 is huge!

    And, my experience, I never use the warranty (touch wood!), so grey is ok for me.

    Arto.

    So to summarise, grey set is perfectly fine.

    Hi guys
    Some questions before I get my hands on a new DSLR....

    a) What is the difference between the warranty of a grey and non-grey?

    b) How would you know that its a GREY set?
    What do you look out for that gives it a GREY status?

    c) Who sells GREY sets? Only some retailers?

    d) Does Nikon SC repair/service GREY sets? If not, who does?

    e) What happens to a GREY set when it has problems?

    Thanks guys!
    The sooner you get it, the longer you enjoy it.
