5 stars but not genuine Nikon??,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikkor Lens AFS DX 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6G VR (Camera)
I've got fantastic images with this lens (5*****) but as it was my first I was a bit green. Having purchased further Nikon lenses which have all come with a Nikon certificate, I realise now this lens didn't come through the appropriate channels: no certificate but in what appears to be a Nikon box with an 8 digit "Serial no." on the side. All my other lenses have 7 digit serial numbers on the Nikon warranty. You've got to watch out with Amazon sellers. Unfortunately is seems difficult to determine exactly where they are based. I purchased an item from a seller called "UK Style" so in my naivety I assumed it was a British company. No. Chinese. Crafty b*****s.

You say "difficult to determine exactly where they are based".
If there is only one seller for an item (not this item), there is sometimes no 'Available from these sellers' link to the page 'Buying Choices'.
Sometimes you get a link '1 used from £42' or '1 new from £42', but not always.
I've taken to copying and pasting the 'ASIN' item number into the browser address bar by hand !
Sometimes sellers don't declare their country of origin on their storefront or seller-details pages.
(I think that's naughty according to amazon rules ...)
I've suggested to Amazon.co.uk that this 'Buying Choices' page should always be linked for every item.

I agree. The seller's country of origin should be upfront and clear. One seller I foolishly ordered from called themselves "UK Style". I naively assumed they were based in the UK. Not so - they were based in China. This was blatant misrepresentation. One way is to email the seller and ask where they are based.
