This forum has a really nice bunch of people. That is why I keep coming back!
Be warned, since I see you're from Sweden. I don't beleive Canon will repair your equipment that is purchased in the US but repaired in Sweden. Of course, you could buy a "Gray market" lens (which is just another term for an imported lens) because they don't have a US warenty and therefor would (hopefully) be repaired in your home country.
If you're in NY City, I suggest checking B&H Photo and Video. It is the largest single seller of photo and video equipment in the entire US. The store is supposed to be huge and they have great prices.
