I was wondering if anyone could post about their good -- or bad -- experiences buying gray market cameras and lenses. I was considering a new Canon EOS R w/24-105. "Going gray" could save me around 700+ over buying with the USA warranty. I'm fully aware of the possibilities of dealing with a warranty issue during the warranty period (1 year). But... if a repair cost less than $700, I would still be either "even or ahead". After a year had passed, wouldn't matter, because I'd still have to pay. I've been waiting for Canon to put the EOS R into their online refurbished store, but it doesn't appear to be happening. I've bought from the Canon refurb store twice before, very satisfied and saved good $$$ both times. But no EOS R there to buy... So... I might take the risk of "buying gray". What say you? Any dealers to recommend?
