Hi everyone, I have been looking to buy a D300 and have found one at a good price. The only issue is it comes with a MAC 3 year warranty and to be honest I don't know how good or bad that might be. Any help would be appreciated.
Its a UK purchase but I think its a USA import.

Check what happens in event of a fault. Does the camera go to Nikon, or does it have to get shipped back to HK or USA. And do you have to pay postage costs, and what is the turn around time.
Is it a warranty with Nikon, or with an insurance company, or the original seller.
I cannot tell where you live but a Mack warranty strongly implies you are buying in USA and it is not covered by Nikon USA's warranty.
If you are in UK you pay VAT etc on a gray import - and you may have problems reimporting it without a second tax bill if it has to go overseas for a repair.
The first digit in the serial number shows where it was intended to be sold and warranted so grey imports are easily identified.
See here for one experience:
They are not really worth having if you are in the UK is my view. With a camera body I would tend to want a full Nikon warranty.
Thanks everyone I think I will pass on this one and get a UK model with a full Nikon warranty.
