cheap (gray market) source for Nikon 500 or 720 rear unitgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
I have the Nikon 360T and considering the 500 or 720 rear unit for it for the right price. What's the cheapest source for this rear unit? Gray market is fine. Also, in stock would be nice for delivery this week.

Good luck, they are hard to find, specially for a low price. Its a lock item whereas camera makers rarely ever discount such an item.. If you do find a source, please inform us! B&H grey was the best I could do on the 1200 rear element... Good luck...

Good shop and good prices. No VAT on shipments to U.S. Approximately $480 for the 720mm rear and $456 for the 500mm rear. There you go. If he has in stock shipment is pretty quick from the UK.
