Nikon US and Nikon SG (and authorized dealers) might both sell lenses with International warranty (your assumed meaning: you can go to any Nikon Service Center and get it repaired). But whether those lenses in Amazon.com also come with this warranty is not stated. And that was your question, right?
    Yes. that was my main concern..probably i just need to giv a call to NSC and mystery will be solved..@@

    If i'm not wrong, you need a receipt issued in US to claim the international warranty in Singapore.
    Parallel import set sold in Singapore doesn't come with the international warranty as the receipt is issued locally here.

    I got my 85mm from UK and Nikon SG accepts the warranty!

    Just in case if you decide to buy your future lenses overseas (w/o people carrying back for you), bear in mind the GST leveraged against items whose indicated value on the custom slip is more than S$400. I believed that this could be waived if the items are declared as "gifts" but not all stores are willing to label it as such for you.

    when you use vpost, GST will be included into part of the cost to ship back anything that cost 400 or more. This seems to be inclusive of the shipping charges in us.
