m8 comes with international warranty?

Hi, Im visiting NY by the end of this month and am planning on ordering the M8 (I'll order in advance of arriving from my hotel which is outside of NYC and allows me to save on sales tax).

Is the 2 year limited warranty valid internationally, so if I get any problem in Europe I could just send it to my local dealer without a problem?

thanks,

António

If they do... they are the only ones!
Nor Nikon, Canon and others do!
In fact they don't like people do that......
And beware of customs on the way back.. they love the NYC flights.... a sério!
Boa sorte!

The warranty is international, it's with Leica Camera AG regardless of where you get it. That's what my warrany cards says.

(sidenote: Canon Japan issues international warranty on all their products sold there.)

If you are thinking of ordering from NYC's B&H and have them ship it to a hotel, when I tried ordering some gear from them and having them ship it up to a hotel in New Hampshire where I was working in 2004, they would not do it, for security and fraud reasons. This was a credit card order. Not sure if their policy has changed or not.

Obrigado migtex

I'll be careful (most of my Nikon gear was bought in NY) though I'll only buy the M8 if it comes with an international warranty. There are too many complaints to take any risk.

Can any US forum member (or anyone who bought their M8 in US) help?


thanks,

António

Thanks Fundin

I will place my order.

Saxshooter, I was not aware of that policy. That was my original plan, so I guess I have to move to plan B

Regards,

António

You can try, but I just found that B&H's shipping rules still states THIS
