Took a class last Saturday which opened my eyes to many things. One of those being the fact my old D100 is a bit lacking for what I want to do. I'm thinking of going with the Nikon D7000, used for now, but am concerned about winding up with a gray market special. Is there any way of identifying an actual US model as opposed to an "other country" model? It's a minor detail right now as a used body is out of warranty anyway, but if it came to needing a repair, I rather like the idea of being able to get them done instead of being told I wasted my money. I looked at a number of new cameras, and they're nice, similarly priced to the used D7000, but I can use the lenses I already have with the 7000. That and the capabilities of the D7000 just seem amazing. If all goes as planned, this camera would take me through a lot more learning and maybe get my wife started as well. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

I have very good luck with factory refurbished models. Go to Nikonusa.com and see what they have. I only get refurbished cameras and equipment from the manufacturer. Good luck.
