First, let me say that I exhausted the search possibilities in Photo.net before posting my question. I am already familiar with grey products. In fact, I did buy my an F80 (not N80) some years ago, from B&H and never had a problem with it. Although all my lenses are used, I'm sure some may be grey as well... And I know about issues with Nikon not even touching grey gear. However, despite these circumstances, I wouldn't hesitate about buying a Nikon grey digital camera (I know of a place where they repair the stuff that used to be an authorized Nikon center) if it wasn't for one aspect: updates. Do these cameras receive ocassional system updates? Is it necessary to download software of some type for them after purchase? Has anyone here bought grey Nikon digital cameras on purpose? Thanks in advance!
