Is that the case with all the gray market 6D bodies? I have also read here on the forum, that some of the 'gray' bodies they got were US models with warranties.
Any direct import ('grey market') lenses sold by Adorama will be clearly marked, and you are more than welcome to contact me directly should you have any concerns regarding a specific listing.
We don't sell "imported" camera bodies. Anyone in the US selling an "imported" body is not an authorized reseller.
For, I think, about the past 10 years, the policy of Canon USA has been to honor their warranty for any unit sold though an authorized Canon reseller, whether it has been imported by an authorized agent or is direct import. [BUT, not all Canon subsidiaries follow this, eg Canon UK won't currently service a direct import unit].
All the customer requires is the original, dated receipt to verify the reseller and the date of sale – apparently you don't even need the warranty card - and even if you do have the warranty card, you will still have to provide the receipt!
Some consumers believe that the only practical reason to buy a USA warranted lens is if you think you may require warranty service outside the USA.
On grey market lenses, Adorama provides a warranty which is identical to the terms of manufacturer's warranty, but the length of the warranty is equal to the length of the manufacturer's warranty - or a year, whichever is less.
Equipment classified as USA, from an authorized dealer in the United States, will be eligible for Canon warranty service (almost) anywhere in the world.
