Complaint Review: B&H Photo - New York New York
B&H Photo B & H B&H sent me Nikon Grey Market lenses that Nikon will not warranty - I was ripped off!! New York, New York
*Author of original report: There is a difference between grey market lenses - obviously
*UPDATE Employee: B&H replies
I purchased 3 Nikon Lenses in Feb, 2012 from B&H. They sent me 3 nikon lenses that I now find out were grey market lenses. Within 8 months, 2 of the lenses needed service and I sent them to Nikon to have them repaired and was told that they will not touch them because they are grey market lenses. When I looked into it, I found that B&H sells "USA" lenses and "imported" lenses. They have the same B&H part number and the same Nikon part number and are sold for the same price. The USA lens has a 5 year warranty and is serviced by Nikon. The Imported lens has a 1 year warranty through B&H. Nobody would EVER knowingly buy the grey market lens!! This is an absolute bait & switch deal. I will never buy anything from these rip-offs again.
