This does not come with a USA warranty but a one year warranty from the seller "6ave". Given the price and type of camera and lens, this is not an unreasonable risk for one to take, but different people have different risk matrix tolerance levels, so, as always, it's up to you to decide. This is a limited time offer - the exact expiration date is unknown.

B&H Photo is offering the imported (grey market) Canon 22mm f2 STM EF-M mirrorless lens for $100 with free shipping. This has a one year warranty from B&H Photo, not Nikon. As the B&H website explains...
Items marked "Imported" are imported and/or distributed by other entities and are warranted by B&H Photo-Video. "Imported" products do not qualify for manufacturers rebate programs. There is no difference in the item itself.
