I was planning on getting a Canon 70-200 F4L IS USM from Hongkong. Then I found out that HK no longer issue International Warranty, but only HK warranty. Meaning, if I do need to send my lens for repair, Canon Singapore will not honour it. In that case, it means that it is pretty much similar to me getting a lens from DD electronics, right? A check online of prices from both Hongkong and DD Electronics shows that prices are about the same, which is pretty much as much as $400 SGD in savings, compared to the other shops in Singapore, which offers proper local warranty. Getting a lens from DD (gray set) = getting a lens from HK (gray set in Canon Singapore's eyes)??? advice very much appreciated from a newbie.
