Canon Worldwide Warranty?

Mon Oct 27, 2003 3:47 am

Hello,


I was wondering whether Canon is offering a worldwide warranty on all of its products please? If I buy a 300D (Digital Rebel) and a 28-135IS lens in the US, will I be able to send it to Canon France for repair if necessary?


Thanks,

Best regards,
Alain Mengus

A guy at photo.net asked the same question to Canon outside the USA.
Canon replied "Unfortunately, the Canon cameras don't carry an 'Interna-
tional warranty'. The Canon One Year warranty would only be valid in the
country of original purchase. Extended warranties would only be available
through the dealer with whom the Canon camera is purchased"

Hello Anders,


Many thanks for the info. But I guess the warranty delivered with the camera by Canon Germany would not have such restrictions and is valid everywhere in Europe?


Many thanks,

Best regards,

I bought a lens from the US, and the warranty was valid in Holland even though the warranty read "USA and Canada"

Hello Tim,


Thanks. I actually got an answer from Canon France; cameras bought in the US only have there warranty valid there, while lenses have a worldwide warranty.
