The D300, the D3 and a bunch of new lenses go on sale in November.

I inquired at Foto File and they say Thailand will have them several months later, even though they are made in Thailand.

Will the flagship D3 be made in Thailand too?

Maybe you mean a grey market or parallel import product, not imported by the local official Nikon importer. It happened to me here in Bangkok when I bought a Nikon camera and when I wanted to register it on Nikon's website, Nikon informed me that this was a grey market product and they would not allow me to download a manual in a different language.

Well, there are other websites where I was able to find the manual, but it's annoying. Nikon even accused me of having an "illegal" camera, which is absolutely not true and legally wrong. They emphasized, however, that the camera I bought had full factory warranty since it was a genuine Nikon product.

I was recently offered a pair of Bose brand headphones that turned out were China made copies...

Amazing what is being copied there these days. I have been told many Nokia phones sold in Thailand are also China made knockoffs that really resemble the "real" thing.

I am abit confused with this as Nikon camera`s are made in Thailand(granted some models)so does this still apply as a "Grey Import"?

Havn't seen any Nikon DSLRs on the vendor tables along Sukhumvit yet but would not be suprised if they are copying them as we speak.

The worlds most popular DLSR ever, would probably be worth knocking off.

They can duplicate a Rolex and have it go thru the delivery channels and retail for 10$.

Amazing.
