Hi guys,I would like some comment or advice from fellow CS'ers with regards to the international warranty issue.
Let's say if u were to purchase a Sigma lens from HK & the shop owner offered u a 3 years int'l warranty,is it still applicable here in Singapore?Will Sigma be able to honour it if something happens to the lens.
For that matter,I called up Sigma & a lady says that usually, whichever brand of lens comes with 12 mths of warranty.If it is an int'l warranty,then it must be bought from an authorised dealer.Only then,will Sigma be able to honour the repair or whatsoever.
But my concern is that,anyone anywhere can tell u his or their shop is authorised to sell whichever brand but how true is that?There is no way to verify how reliable it is.& by posting (B&S Section) that a certain lens still has 24 months of international warranty,how can that be???
When the lady at Sigma says that int'l warranty is valid for 12 mths only (any brand) & it must be bought at an authorised dealer for the warranty to be valid.Can someone comment or shed some light on this issue?
Thanks in advance for the enlightenment!
