Canon EOS-M with 22mm f2 for $250 [Imported/Gray Market]

This is an imported model and it comes with a one year warranty from the seller, not from Canon. But the price is low enough that the risk is not as big as it would be on a $3000 DSLR. It is the new condition Canon EOS-M with 22mm f2 prime, offered in either black or white, for $250 with free shipping by eBay seller "BigValueInc" (99.3%). Limit five per buyer. Again, this is an imported / gray market camera.

Imported/GreyMarket: Canon 22mm f2 STM EF-M (EOS-M) for $100

B&H Photo is offering the imported (grey market) Canon 22mm f2 STM EF-M mirrorless lens for $100 with free shipping. This has a one year warranty from B&H Photo, not Nikon. As the B&H website explains...

Items marked "Imported" are imported and/or distributed by other entities and are warranted by B&H Photo-Video. "Imported" products do not qualify for manufacturers rebate programs. There is no difference in the item itself.

Given the low price of the lens, the fact that it is a small prime, and B&H Photo's reputation, the grey market risk in this case is fairly low.

Nikon 18-35mm f3.5-4.5D Grey Market for $540

If you don't want to pay $750 for the new Nikon 18-35mm f3.5-4.5G, and you want to pay less for the previous model, then perhaps you may also want to consider the grey market (direct import) option. The older D-version of the lens goes for $610 with USA warranty but if you go Grey Market, you can get it for $540 at Adorama and B&H Photo. Being a Grey Market product, Nikon USA will not offer warranty services for it, but both Adorama and B&H Photo offer their own warranty on the product that parallels what would have been the manufacturer's warranty. Both Adorama and B&H have been around for a while and thoroughly vetted, so if you are going to take a risk on a grey market, they are reliable companies to take a risk with.

Canon 50mm f1.8 II (Import/Gray Market) for $99 w/free S&H

The USA warranty new condition Canon 50mm f1.8 II prime lens has slowly climbed to $125, but if you want to pay less, you can get it for $99 with free shipping a as grey market import at B&H Photo (no USA warranty; warranty by B&H). When trading off the pros and cons of imports, keep in mind this is a simple $100 prime lens. The trade-off weights would be a lot different if you one is evaluating a $1,000 lens and/or a more complicated/sensitive lens. You must add to cart and proceed to the checkout page in order to see the $99 price. Before that, the price you see is $125... Research with list of Canon 50mm f1.8 II lens reviews.
