The answers that I gave on the length of warranty is for the 70-200 F2.8 HSM DG EX model that Towsen is interested in.

The 18-200 mm F3.5-6.3 is not an EX model and has a 1 year warranty from either B&H or Sigma4less. These two lenses are quite different. The 18-200 is a standard lense, where the EX is the higher end lense.

Thanks for the information Bill! That helps explain the big difference in price between them. I'm placing my order with B&H for the 70-200 tonight. Thanks to everyone for their comments and help.:-)

Towsen

Your welcome. Hope you like your new lens. I might end up getting this lens in the future too. Let us know how it works for you.

This is after the issue has been decided, but FWIW...

Canon lenses - I buy from B&H always.

Sigma lenses - either Sigma4Less, or, Delta. I purchased the Sigma 120-300 f 2.8 about 4 months ago. I believe that it was $2,399 on B&H, and I got it for under $1,850 from Delta, including a 3 year MAC warranty and shipping! It is an awesome lens. Here is a link to a few photos that I've posted to a 120-300 album:
