Do you really have to deal with Nikon USA in the US ??

Here in Europe, we don't care what Nikon's or any other manufacturer's policies are - when something is broken, we go to the merchant that sold us the product. He has 2 shots at fixing it (ie having it fixed by the importer), after that it's money back. We don't deal with any distributors, importers or authorized service centers - it's the merchant's job. During the 2 years warranty period that is mandatory in Europe. Any warranty beyond those 2 years is optional, so it may require dealing with authorized service centers etc.

Yet people complain about why goods are so much more expensive there...

Well, good customer service/regulations in EU has nothing to do with higher prices on electronics - its about different taxes and duties than in US.
