Nikon D810 Body: $2380 imported or $2800 with lots of freebies and Nikon USA warranty

To the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller Red Tag Camera (99.9%, ships from Brooklyn) is offering the new condition imported grey-market Nikon D810 body only for $2380 with free shipping. This only gets a 30-day seller warranty and that’s it. This may have been part of a kit with a lens, with the lens removed (to be sold separately for more $profits$).

The offer may be for more high risk offers, if you happen to need accessories or Lightroom 6, you may be better off paying $2800 for the new condition with Nikon USA warranty from Adorama that has three different bundles with free items going for $2800:

+ with Lightroom 6

+ lots of accessories but no LR6: Green Extreme Extra Battery, 66-inch Takama tripod, Flashpoint remote shutter thing, Flashpoint release cable thing, Lowepro Nova 17L AW shoulder bag, and Corel Software Bundle (five titles including Aftershot PRO 2 and Paintshop PRO X8

+ lots of accessories: replaces Lowepro bag with cleaning kit (I think)
