Canon 90D

I'm ready to purchase a Canon 90D body with a Canon warranty from a reputable dealer. Seems that the only ones available are grey market (non Canon USA imports) at the moment with (non Canon) in store warranties available for purchase. Anyone have input as to when Canon USA approved product will be available? I would prefer to buy from Canon directly if possible so I know I am getting the latest / newest product and updated firmware.

Well Rick, considering there is only $150 price differential and one gets the much more flexible and excellent 18-135 IS USM, the better deal is actually the one in stock, I think!

Why not have a look for Canon refurbished bodies?  They have been maintained by Canon and carry their one-year warranty and are, of course, genuine Canon-authorized product.  They even come in a box, albeit a white one, but essentially they will be as new.   Here is a link to search for product on their site - none right now but they come and go regularly.  See here

I could, but I want the best bang for my buck, and I am not in a huge rush. I like the idea of new product and latest firmware.

You could, because refurb gear comes at a significant price reduction and the firmware is usually updated - you are sitting on the sharp part of a fence between wanting a cheap deal, but not wanting grey market. 

Canon have made it clear that their priority is now their R-series cameras and with production issues including shortages for things as universal to multiple bodies as screws, a lot of products are being held up.  So, you may wait quite a while and when they do come to stores, you can join a queue of other 90D hopefuls hoping for a deal when it is a seller's market...

As to firmware, that is a fairly straightforward process and it's something to get used to as Canon is doing more firmware updates these days than it had previously done.

@LuckyJames..

Unless you want your luck to run out, don't support or buy gray market.

I also recommend you follow Trevors excellent advice.

The bang for the buck deal on Canon gear is the Canon Online Refurbished Store.

Trevor,

I agree.  The 18~135 and 55~250 came with my T6s.  Great combo.  The 18~135 is a hard to beat kit lens for someone upgrading or just starting out.
