I got a warranty card with mine.

A blank warranty card doesn't mean anything.

I brought my 24-105 to Canon service Center in Irvine CA. The 1st thing they asked me "do have receipt with you?"

Eh, I still got one in the box.

How can you get the receipt when they are NOT authorized dealer?

I have the warranty card in my hands right now. If it actually helps in a claim is another matter.  ;D

I also got a fold over sheet that looks like it came from Canon (says Canon on it and has the right colors and logo)  It folds in 1/4s and looks like it is a warranty card but says it's not a warranty card right on it. But it does have the printed lens description and the serial number. It's not like a 3x5 card, more like a pamphlet or something.

I'm pretty happy today.....

Mine was definitely new. Other than not getting a warranty card I'm very happy. I've done test shots to compare it with my 28-135mm IS and I can already tell this lens is sharper. My 28-135mm was always soft for me so I'm not shocked.

I'm keeping mine. For $750, there is no reason to go buy new from B&H to get a 1 year warranty. I've had 4 Canon lenses, 3 SLRs in my life and I've never had to warranty repair any of them...
