Re: USA vs Import Nikon at B&H Photo

There is no difference in quality between US or Import. The big difference is if you have any problem with the imported lens Nikon will not repair it even if you pay for it. This might be a problem if the repair involves some special parts which may not be available for the non Nikon repair places.
I would pay the extra money and get Nikon's 5 year warranty with the US lens.

I would appreciate any comments regarding the purchase of USA vs
Import Nikon products at B&H Photo.

The Nikon USA lenses generally cost about 20% more than the import
lenses, but both come with a one year warranty. Is there any
difference in quality?

I'm also considering purchasing a Nikon FM3a, and the USA model is
20% more expensive than the import. Again, B&H indicates both have
a one year warranty. What's the difference?

Thanks,

Nats
