Hikvision cameras from Amazon?

I noticed the Hikvision cameras often are 30-40% cheaper on Amazon (from random 3rd party resellers, I think) than for example B&H.

The model numbers are all super confusing and Amazon has lots of listings that are basically for some other camera (or a rebranded Hikvision?) where they just included the OEM model number to get into search results.

Anyway — is there a known catch with the Amazon ones? Grey market imports? Different firmwares? We need 10-12 cameras, so saving $100+ on each would be nice. 🙂
