Ordering lens to Canada
I'm new to Canada and I think but I'm not sure, if ordering a lens from United states is there any tax/customs fees?
Looking to score a nice lens during black friday sales

Totally wrong.I have checked with them by email and phone and they do provide repair service for Nikon products that have been purchased in States.

Totally WRONG yourself. You must not have explained things to Nikon or they might not have understood you. But check out Nikon Canada's webpage on Grey Market product - Grey Market Products.
What are Grey Market products?
Nikon products that are imported and sold by anyone other than Nikon Canada Inc. are considered Grey Market products. These usually are genuine Nikon products that were intended for other Nikon markets; therefore, they may not meet Nikon’s specifications for Canadian products and they may not perform as expected.
Nikon Canada Inc. and Nikon Authorized Dealers will not provide technical support, repair or warranty service on Grey Market products. If you suspect you may have purchased a Grey Market Nikon product, please contact the seller or importer for warranty and service information as well as software updates and downloads.
How can I be sure I’m buying an official Nikon Canada product?
Remember: the easiest way to recognize a grey market product is that the product does not include a Nikon Canada Inc. warranty. Look for, or ask for a Nikon Canada Inc. warranty whenever you buy a Nikon product.

I've actually had no problems with Nikon service. In fact, I've owned and used Nikon equipment for the past 25 years and am good friends with Nikon's Western Canada Sales Manager for over 30 years. I used to sell Nikon equipment for one of the largest photographic retailers in Western Canada.esfandiyar2002 wrote: ↑Dec 26th, 2018 10:32 amSeems you have had hard time with Nikon service.I said clearly and I explain in more details here:
1) Nikon Canada has no direct importing lens or camera bodies into Canada.They receive it from main source which is Nikon US.
2)Nikon US shares their imported camera bodies & lenses serial number with Nikon Canada.So,when Nikon Canada receives stuff to be repaired,they look at its serial number.
3)Grey market means serial numbers of lenses and bodies that are out of imported items.
4)When you have purchase a lens or camera body from legit source within States and you need repair service,you drop an email to Nikon Canada saying that you have purchased a lens from legit US source and you need repair service.They ask for your item serial number and if it is under their given list,you will receive a service,but you should pay for.I did it for my 70-200mm f/2.8E FL that was originally purchased in States from legit source when it was on rebate.No further question asked.
Am I understood enough?So,instead of tossing old statements,do me a favor and call Nikon or drop an email onto their support service.I don't know why it is so hard to flat earth believers to accept otherwise!

Nikon Canada's website is very clear on what qualifies for support and what does not. I am NOT tossing out old statements as they are the current statements published by Nikon Canada on their website. I really don't understand how you can blame someone for quoting what is listed on the manufacturer's website as their policy.

No flat Earth believer here... I'm a firm believer in published facts (ie what's clearly stated on their website) rather than hearsay and unsubstantiated statements like yours - ie provided no documented proof of the claim.esfandiyar2002 wrote: ↑Feb 10th, 2019 5:43 pmOh,I see this now!

Aside from kidding...Call and ask.Seems you have not read carefully what I have written.If you have purchased a lens from legit source in States,they DO provide lens service and support.Either their web page has not been updated yet,or this is another hidden policy and they don't want to publicly announce it.Your years of experiences with them,with all due respect, has noting to do with constant changes in Nikon policies.Simple as that.

Be my guest and believe what you are firmly believing. Seems to me like someone believes in God and when asked for proof,comes with a holly book in hand!If someone else says otherwise,they will be accused of having no poof and telling hearsay!

Not only you're incredibly offensive, you refuse to understand that your personal experience is not part of their official policy.esfandiyar2002 wrote: ↑Feb 11th, 2019 8:11 am
4)My purchased legit lens from States has been received repair service in Nikon Canada,thankfully.How many times should I repeat it?That is a very good question and I have no real answer to that!
I am done on this conversation conniving people on small facts that is not my real job,so be happy with your believes and findings.So,do me a favor:please forget what I said! If it pleases you,consider them wrong and accept my apology.I am very happy with my findings.Simple as that.
