LOL, international spec will be "you pay for repairs if you can find a person to work on it". Nikon absolutely will not work on Gray market items (international spec is Massdrop's deflective way of stating that it is gray market). So, you are on your own. It's not worth it to save 26 dollars at B&H for the american full warranty item. Or if you are in europe you are still in the same boat, you just have to find some sucker that will work on an unregulated import lens. Not many want to touch them.
