    So I am surfing the B&H site thinking about a 70-200mm 2.8 lens for my Nikon D70. Something for outdoor sports and such. When I get to the site I find that they have 2 70-200mm 2.8 lenses on the list.

    Whats the diff besides ~$50.00

    both are

    70-200mm
    f/2.8D
    G-AFS
    ED-IF
    VR


    One is in stock and of course it's the one that is $50.00 more. Besides the cost I really don't see that much to set them apart. I did just look again and the one thing is one is imported and the other is from the USA. Is this the same lens and just built in other locations?

    one is Gray Market and will not have a Nikon USA Warranty,
    You would have to send it back to them for any warrany if you can get it at all, pay the $50. It is worth it

    Thanks guys... I ended up with the US version. I don't like buying items with a questionable warrenty. I ordered it and it should be here tomorrow.
