> Nikon USA does is build in a certain margin to cover the extended warranty
This is true, but the other subsidiaries have the same extended warranty, don't they? Why would the cost be that different? I know, Nikon USA's budget doesn't cover a repair that was budgeted in Nikon Japan. But you know? I don't care. As far as I'm concerned, it's up to Nikon to get that sorted out internally. I do not want to have to know about your (Nikon's in this case) internal organization structures.
