  It should be emphasized this is a non-USA product and while grey market camera equipment can be a good deal, the buyer should know what they are trading off.  Besides warranty issues, firmware upgrades are also going to be more difficult.  I've owned dozens of Nikon products over the years and never had to send anything back for warranty work, so I'd say the chances of ever needing this are very slim.  The bigger issue is probably firmware upgrades.  I believe you'll need to go to the Nikon site that serves the region where the camera originated.  So not impossible, but more of a hassle than just buying a USA Nikon.  You can get a 7200 Nikon factory refurb for about $100 more, which comes with at least a 90 day warranty and software updates and any future repairs will be no problem.

  I'm pretty sure firmware updates aren't region specific.  I've bought grey market Canon and Nikon DSLR's and haven't had any problem using the firmware from the US support page on any of them.

I did end up jumping on this deal because combined with the 8% eBay bucks offer from a few days ago, it gave me back $58 which would drop the price down to $660'ish.  After purchasing I got an email from the retailer offering to sell me warranty on the unit.  Not sure how legit it is since it mentions CPS.  I thought that meant Canon Professional Services (which would be strange for a Nikon product), but after a quick Google search turns out is a company called Consumer Priority Service which some forums say to avoid..  Not too sure on how much truth there is to their claims since I've heard that Nikon are quite the sticklers when it comes to grey market goods, and their email claims that services were performed by Nikon.  In any case, they offered it for $119.95.  I cut and paste it below in case anyone is curious what it covered.  If they actually do cover what it claims, seems like it would be a great deal.
