Canon Warranty May Be Honored For Purchases Made From Non Authorized Dealers

Interesting question posted by a user in the Canon USA forum:

Does Canon honor the USA warraties if its purchased from a non authorised dealer?

If I buy a new 5D MKIII from a non authorized dealer do I have a Canon 12 month warranty or not?

As long as the EOS 5D Mark III was purchased New, In box, you should have the same warranty coverage.  To help you out, we’ve included a link to the Service and Support page on our website for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III camera.  Click “Warranty Terms” under “Service & Repair”, and you’ll find a link to the full camera warranty on this page.

Although there is no official statement by Canon about this issue, it appears that Canon is indeed honoring such warranty claims.
