Have you bought anything from this company?  I was searching in Google for a lens and Google showed these guys in search results.  Their prices seem a little lower than other places.  Legit or run?

I have no idea but you can find gray market goods on Amazon and Ebay.

Those are undoubtedly gray market goods. US sellers can't set prices below what Nikon decides (for warranteed equipment). Any oddly low price on a  Nikon DSLR is a dead giveaway.

If they were legitimate, they would state somewhere that those products don't include the manufacturer warranty. Which tells me they're shady.

YMMV.

Was Nikon referenced because of the OP has a Nikon D750 shown in his profile or is there something here that applies to only Nikon and not to Canon or Sony?

*Updated, you own a Nikon too.  So is your statement tie into the fact that both you and OP, have a Nikon.  Had you both had a Canon or Sony, would you have referenced a Canon.  I'm fishing to see if there is more a gray market problem with Nikon than  others?

Yes, because a D750 was referenced.

No, it's not just a Nikon problem. Gray market issues, to my understanding, are similar to both Nikon and Canon. Not sure about other companies, as I don't pay attention, but I would think it would be similar everywhere.

Funny how some are more open about grey market than others, yet most sell these products.  Again, not endorsed by manufactures, yet it's tolerated.

The international service is but no national will.
They can't do much against it as it is not illegal.

Light is free… capturing it is not!
