Sigma4Less is much cheaper than B&H for the same Sigma lens. What do you gain by going with B&H and what you lose by going with Sigma4Less?:?

Sigma4less is "Grey" market...
B&H also sell "Grey", but if you get a real US lens from B&H, the EX series carry a total of 4 years warranty

Thank you all for the help and great advice. After a lot of debate between Sigma 105mm Macro vs. Sigma 70mm MacroI ordered Sigma 105mm lens yesterday from B&H. Their site called it a "USA" lens so I am hoping it will come with a 4 years warranty. The key deciding factors were weight and possible upgrade to a FF camera like 5D in 2008.
New lens will be arriving on Tuesday 12/11...

Next task; make sure thatI check out the lens for the proper focus, sharpness and any other quality issues within the14 days of return/exchange window.

Can you suggest recommendedmethods for that or point me to link(s) where this is already described???:?

I goofed... :ak47:
They've changed

-> Just got two Sigma EX from Sigma4less and both come with USA 4 years warranty - Big saving over other places... YMMV
BTW the Sigma lens cases are now black instead of green and not as well padded as before...
