Thread: How much are you willing to pay above overseas price for local warranty?

    Default How much are you willing to pay above overseas price for local warranty?

    In the case of say a 70-200 2.8, its about $250 more but gives 3 years local warranty. To me its worthwhile as it will be my primary work lens.

    what about you guys?

    Extending the local warranty by 2 years is about 10% of the lens retail price. Hence the difference is quite small.

    That was my thinking eg. Tamron in US is offering 6 years in US while in SG is 3 years and the thing is in some cases, singapore is more expensive yet shorter warranty.
