Think they are all grey imports, no manufacturer warranty and all that that implies. Cheap but risky.

been doing some research and the grey goods are exactly the same as uk goods by all accounts ,like you say nick the warranty is the issue .
ive never had any issues with my old Nikon d90 and I know its a difficult question to answer but how common are faults with these new dslrs
and secondly can anyone recommend a good uk camera retailer then should I play safe and get the full warranty.

There should be no warranty problems with grey imports bought from the right place (not just the cheapest) take a company like HDEW they offer a 3 year warranty, better than Nikon.
Nikon will still do any recall work on grey imports like the D610 oil spots and the D750 shutter shading, the only problem is you are depending on the company staying in business or you have to foot the bill.

What Nikon subsidiaries repair outside the USA is purely controlled by the local law. In some parts of Europe some gray market products are repaired by Nikon because of certain local laws. However, there are lots of horror stories where some gray market seller declined to honor the warranty they advertised.

I found this website is quite resourceful in this regard. It has got loads of genuine reviews and suggestions in revolving around Nikon's gray market. https://productz.com/en/nikon-d500-d...camera/reviews

Not all. The good ones are good but the bad ones are BAD.
