I have been told Nikon D300's are made in China and Japan. and that the one made in china is inferior. I have also been told that all D300's are made in Taiwan and now I read that some are made in the US. I know that some stores are advertising these cameras online, for about $300-$500 less than mainstream stores like B&H or Adorama. I know they don't come with a battery, charger, cables or software. Other than that are they the same camera or are there cheap Nikon nock off's and will Nikon honor the warranty.
