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 rather get a grey set and have it tested for front/back focus before i make the purchase
your friend cant test that for you ..
so far all my nikkors have no problem within 3 years both warranty or grey
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.
