    Wow. Just bought mine at Amazon last week. Paid 3400 with tax.

    Why would you pay tax at Amazon rather than buy from one of the NYC retailers?

    Sure smells like the old "open box" play.

    Couple buyers confirmed it as brand new with 0 shutter count and no calendar/time set up... The price went up but still cheaper then msrp.

    The difference is 1 yr US warranty vs seller warranty whatever that means... It is an import model.

    The only concern is that if this is a Japanese model with hacked firmware, next time when you update the firmware, it will change back to Japanese menu, and there is no way to change it to English.

    The imported model is possibly from Japan with only Japanese menu. Some ppl could hack it to display English menu, however once you update the firmware, the language will go back to Japanese.

    I don't know, might check the s/n. but I would hold on and wait for some feedbacks.

    I called the seller, they affirmed me that they are an authorized dealer and they DO NOT DEAL with grey market product. There should be no trouble updating the firmware.
