I just clicked on the B&H link near the top of the right side of this page (gotta spread some love to TPF) and ordered a Nikon TC-17E teleconverter for my new 70-200 VR. This is the first time I have ever ordered Gray Market, or even seriously considered it... the TC was $70 cheaper ($350 as opposed to $420), and it carries a 1 year B&H warranty... as opposed to Nikon USA's one year warranty on the USA version. The other factor involved is that it was a teleconverter to start with, so not a bunch of moving parts to break. Same warranty period from a reputable company and I save about 17 percent? Sounded OK to me. Now I will have a new toy to play with this weekend!
