Anyone know anything about "thecamerabox" as a seller on ebay? The Tamron site says to only buy from authorized dealers for the 6 yr warranty. I don't see they have the symbol on their page.

I've never heard of them, but check out their ratings at resellerratings.com. They seem to have a decent reputation for not doing the bait-n-switch and upselling. The complaints I read had to do with the problems you have when you buy grey market items. I wouldn't count on them selling you a Tamron with a US warranty.

Thanks, Harriet. That's what I was afraid of. The whole point (besides I like my 70-300 by them) is to get the 6 yr warranty. After had the Pentax one that was only 2 years old have problems,.....

Use the ask the seller message feature and ask them if they are an authorized dealer. You can also call toll free or use their chat feature. Since there is no mention of a warranty - US or otherwise - in the summary box where there is usually provision for that, it is probably an intentional omission - I would suspect grey market merchandise, but it never hurts to ask. Square Deal sellers are usually reliable and back what they say (but not necessarily what they don't say).

Yep, I was going to contact them and ask. But, I'm suspecting, as you said, if they don't say, they probably aren't. I figured I'd see if anyone here had any experience with them.
