    Default I bought TAMRON SP AF 17-50mm f/2.8 XR DI II LD DS for S$355 from ebay. Any advice.

    Bought it yesterday night due to impulse buying. May I know is the purchase okay as I think I have time to cancel it?

    Also anyone know is there warranty as I read tamron is international warranty?

    Not all come with international warranty, if u purchase online u should check with the vendor u buy from.

    From what I read here, seem like they don't cover warranty for set bought outside Singapore.

    sell in BnS at what you got it for then... Take a photo of your impulse buy and stick it next to your computer screen to remind you not to be hasty next time.

    Local Tamron distro will service PI lens but got surcharge on top of the repair bill. Now that Jel is giving 5 years warranty for Tamron lens in SG, not so attractive to get PI units in my opinion especially if going to use the lens extensively.

    What surcharge would that be? Costs for labour and parts are ok. If JEL thinks about some form of 'penalty' they better check with their lawyers carefully, before others do it.

    Jel is now GSH.

    Depends how they use the term "Premium" i think.

    from http://www.tamron.com.sg/index.php/s...portant-notice

    How i read it is the total repair bill + premium.

    This is obvious crap to protect their position as sole official importer. It looks as if they want to impose the amount of money as Premium that they put on top of every officially imported lens.
    Sure, they can try. Customer service is spelled differently, though. Luckily they aren't the only one who can repair a Tamron lens.
