is because the item here is a direct import item (What is commonly referred to as Grey market. Meaning, it was manufactured with the intention of sale in a country other than the USA.
The seller stated in an email to me:
"There is no restriction on a retailer to purchase these items for sale in the US. However, manufacturer's, by way of serial number tracking, are aware of which models were intended for sale in the US, and thus often refuse warranty service on the imported model.
In lieu of the manufacturer's warranty on these imported products, Unique Photo offers our own warranty to support what the manufacturer will not, so that the customer can make their decision with piece of mind. This warranty would be for a period of one year from date of purchase (limited to manufacturing defects)."
Therefore, if you trust the warranty of the Unique Photo Team to be identical, or as good as, the one directly provided by Canon, you can buy this lens, an imported item. Personally I prefer to spend the extra $10 to obtain a warranty directly from Canon, as I have had no prior dealings with The Unique Photo, and have no basis to think that their one-year warranty can compete with Canon's one-year warranty.
The biggest upgrade from the kit lens is the huge gain in speed. This lens is very sharp at f/2.0 or 2.2, and with normal indoor light you will be able to shoot flashless at ISO400 comfortably. This was the lens I trusted for the birth of our first son, and I couldn't be more happy with the images it captured. Even in the low light of the hospital room I was able to catch those first eyes-open moments without a flash.
This lens is very light (maybe a little cheap feeling), which is nice when you are just carrying a camera to family outings or traveling. Really, a Rebel series with this lens is not that much larger than a quality point-and-shoot, but you have much more creative flexability and get much better shots.
