i'm in the u.s., and the only 4-year warranties i've seen are third-party warranties you buy in addition to the camera. every camera or lens i've bought new had/has a 1 year limited manufacturer warranty, although perhaps pro items have longer warranties. my gear ranges from entry level to intermediate.

This depends on the manufacturer.  I believe Sigma lenses from authorized retailers in the U.S. come with a 4-year manufacturer's warranty, while Tamron lenses carry a 6-year warranty.  That said, a lot of the OEM camera brands (Sony, Canon, Nikon, etc.) offer only 1-year warranties.
