One on-line camera store in New York is advertising the Nikon 8800 for sale at $699.00 US funds. A great deal, right? If you contact the store and ask the correct questions you will find out:

1. that it is a gray market camera brought in from Japan, therefore notwarranteed in the United States and

2. the camera's internal menu is entirely in Japanese.Of course so is the instruction manual and any other written documentation.

If it sounds too good to be true it is, period. Check out a store's rating based on customer feedback at:

I bought mine at digibuy.com for $839.00 it was a factory sealed warranted camera the same as one would buy off the shelf in any store here. They have a 5 star rating at Cnet. They were great to do biz with and I had the camera in my hands the next day.

I think one of the posters over at dp review bought from the source you are asking about and raved with nothing but good things to say about them.
