I found a good price on a new D7000 from a Canadian On-Line store from which I've purchased lenses before. If I buy that camera, can I get it serviced in the US? It comes with a "2-Year Nikon Canada Warranty". What is the practical meaning of that versus a Nikon USA Warranty?

I once read that if you buy a Nikon camera and lens overseas, and import it yourself, it would be eligible for warranty repair. Would this be any different?

If anybody has any advice, knowledge, or experience on this, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
