These are lenses that were originally packaged with Canon Camera Kits. We sold the Canon Cameras in a quantity order, and we had simply removed the Lenses and placed them in their own box with all original foam packaging.These Lenses are limited quantity only.
bigvalueinc is not an authorized dealer! They will lie to your face that their products have Canon USA warranty. They don't!
Basically, Canon USA provided warranty service even for a product from unauthorized dealers if customer can provide a valid receipt from any USA retailer. This is for courtesy. However, the last time I talked to Canon, they told me that this was not guaranteed as this policy might change anytime soon. And I highly suspect that Canon will now strictly implement warranty support for authorized dealers only, especially when the price gap is getting wider between gray market and USA products.
If you know about Canon warranty and complaint enough, they will give you extended warranty through Consumer Priority Service (CPS) for free. This happens to a friend of mine who bought something from them and their product didn't have Canon USA warranty card.
I bought this when it was the Daily Deal a few weeks ago. I was concerned for the same reasons, but received a 2012 model that has been perfect. I have never had any trouble with Canon L lenses even when 20 years old, however I do know there are times that problems come up and if something goes wrong over the next year my thinking could backfire.
No warranty on this. I have had L lenses since 2006, not a problem with any of them. If you send them in for cleaning, etc, thats not covered under warranty, so you still have to pay. Good deal if the grey market lens turns out trouble free.
