Default Import or USA model

Good morning all,
I have been in the market for a Nikon 80-200 lens and B & H sells both the import and the USA brand. Or there any physical differences between the two lens. Thanks again for your time.

I doubt it in general, beside B+H provide good support for their grey import in writing from their catalog! Scale may be in meter instead of feet for example... :?

I'd say warranty would be the issue...the US model would have a US warranty, while the import has no warranty by the manufacturer in your country.

In my case I buy grey market computer peripherals (from the US) without thinking because when they die I just replace them with something better anyway, but something that isn't cheap (like my 19" monitor) I buy from a Canadian source so I get the full 3yr warranty.

With a lens, you don't have to worry about it being a Euro standard (PAL/NTSC like you would a whole camera).

You have to read what B&H's policy is on the imported equipment in regards to repair, should you need it.
