Benefits of Buying Local

Reasons to buy from an Authorised Nikon Australia Reseller


Peace of mind with a two year Australian Warranty

When you buy from a Nikon Authorised Reseller you can be 100% certain that product lives up to Nikon’s high standards, and will be supported by Nikon’s local warranty service. This means that in the unlikely event there is a problem with your Nikon product, it will be repaired by a fully qualified and experienced Nikon technician, using only genuine, brand new parts.

Nikon is also pleased to announce that from the 1st of March 2012, all new Nikon KeyMission, COOLPIX, DSLRs, Nikon 1 as well as FX and DX lenses purchased from authorised Nikon resellers will come with an additional 1 Year Warranty*, offering true peace of mind.

*To be eligible for the additional 1 Year Warranty, you must be a member of My Nikon Life and have registered your DSLR on Click here for full terms and conditions.

Quality Control

When you buy a Nikon product from an Authorised Reseller, you know you are buying a genuine product that has followed strict quality control measures before reaching your hands. When you open the factory-sealed box on your new Nikon camera, you’ve got a camera that’s come direct from the factory.


Customer service

Nothing beats the hands-on shopping experience. Buying from a local store means there is a range of support available which you don’t get online. You can ask any questions beforehand, get independent advice on different products, try out a demo model and get advice on the right lenses and accessories. That way you have all the information you need to make a decision, so you won’t be disappointed with your purchase. It also makes the replacement and servicing process easier and quicker if you need the support.


Complying with Australian standards

Buying from an authorised reseller means that your product will be all set up and ready to be used – with manuals, menus and chargers all suited to be used in the Australian market.

Buying through an authorised reseller also ensures your new product complies with Australian legislation in addition to meeting the Government’s C-Tick standard for electrical operation. All Nikon products made for Australia will carry the C-Tick number N16184.

Protection under Australian law

Goods purchased from an overseas entity may not be covered under the rights you are entitled to under Australian law. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) warn that “when dealing with internationally based companies, you may not be protected by Australian law.”*

Only by purchasing from an Australian company are you entitled to your rights for a refund or repair if your product arrives damaged or faulty.


No hidden taxes

When a ‘grey’ online source advertises goods for sale it might not be clear what your tax implications are. GST, for example, won’t be included in the price you pay – but when the product arrives in Australia you may still have to pay GST before customs will release the goods.


My Nikon Life

We like to look after our Australian customers, welcoming them to the Nikon family with numerous extra benefits.
