    I was surfing ebay and noticed a Honk Kong seller who has the X20 listed at $466{free shipping}. I have been wanting an X20 since they came out and been waiting for the price to come down but it hasn't. I can swing this price but not sure about dealing with a grey market camera. The seller has a good rating with the few negatives I read being mostly ahole buyers rather than seller mistakes and none were issues with the products themselves.

    Has anybody in the USA bought a grey market X20? I understand that Fuji America will not handle any warranty work unless it is a USA item. Can anybody direct me to a similar price for the X20 in the USA?

    Thanks!

    Lowest price for new X20's that I've seen in the US is $550. I've seen used ones in the $400's.

    Or maybe Fuji Refurbished? Not sure what the policy is in the US but Fuji UK sells refurbished X series with a 12 month warranty.

    I've bought a few items from HK/JP and have had no issues. Usually they will honor warranties although you will pay for shipping back. Read their warranty and return policy.

    The price is great BUT I really want a silver and black one. One of the reasons I think this camera is so cool is that it brings back fond memories of my old Argus C rangefinder. The black one although functionally the same just doesn't do it for me. I know it shouldn't be about how it looks but...
