I am a Canadian, on a long term contract in Switzerland. I have purchased Nikon equipment in Switzerland and plan to return with it at the end of my contract (before the warranty expires). Before purchasing, I inquired of Nikon Canada and was informed that on my return I will have no warranty coverage. I should go back to Switzerland where I bought the equipment. This is in no way grey market, but Nikon Canada still says that I will be SOL.

I carefully considered the options and decided that I am most likely to have problems in the first months after purchase so it is more important to have a Nikon Switzerland warranty.

Of 14 lenses and 3 DSLR bodies I have yet to have a warranty claim. As for resale, it is not an issue for me. I have two sons who will beg borrow or well you know, any piece of kit that they figure I will not miss. (If they are reading this, I do miss my 105mm f/2 DC).
