Most likely not (Kit should be able to confirm this). Alot of the new stuff sold at TCW are grey market items that do not come with the manufacturers' warranty. However, I understand that TCW gives its own 1 year in-shop warranty.Originally posted by cheangv
Thats quote a good price from Camera Workshop. I just asked Cathay and they quote me 2250. They emphasised that it came with warranty. Does the one from Camera Workshop come with the warranty?
Yup. Camera Workshop will honour a 1 year warranty. If that doesn't bother you (doesn't bother me), you can save a few hundred. I don't see why not but its up to individual. If I remembered correctly, they also offered me a 7 day trial. FYI, Cathay quoted me $2050 for the 28-70L.Originally posted by Edmund

The 7 day trial covers only mechanical failure. So you won't benefit from it because you changed your mind on the lens, etc. I can't really remember what they do. Maybe a one to one exchange but don't quote me on that. People working there are friendly and very approachable. I usually speak to Nic or Don.Originally posted by cheangv
Thks for the info. Anyone has any bad experiences from Camera Workshop's in house warranties? Kit, so what happens if you are not happy after the 7 day trial, you get your money back or they just let you use the credits to purchase something else?
I have doubts about the performance of the rumoured new lens given the extra range. Avoiding this lens just because its old doesn't justify anything, unless you're concerned with the latest and greatest more than anything else. This is one helluva lens!!!Originally posted by zhoufang
The price of this lens in HK is about $1300 only. (new and parrellel imported)
This is quite a old lens and the rumoured update 24-105/2.8L maybe out very soon.
So $2K I don't find it worthy to buy it now unless u really need one today.
