Buy a squaretrade warranty then.  Canon may or may not honor the warranty based on your receipt. 
Geesh... you bought from them because you wanted to save money... this is the risk you take.  Geesh.

IF you have to buy warranty through a 3rd party for a new lens, then why not buy it from authorized dealer :-\

By not having a warranty, do yo mean the warranty card was not in the the box? 

Just curious, because I recently purchased a 24-70 2.8 II from BigValue Inc. via eBay and there was no warranty card in the box.  I just assumed Canon had stopped using the cards and registered the lens on the Canon website.  Does not having a card mean there is no warranty?

I bought mine from Crutchfield(authorized dealer).  Warranty card is included.

I said before and I'm going to say it again. PLEASE BUY YOUR NEXT HIGH END CAMERA OR "L" LENS THROUGH AUTHORIZED DEALER PEOPLE. If saving couple hundred $ is so DAM important, then wait for Canon rebates and buy it through authorized dealer.

Yes...you can open a dispute through your CC, Ebay, or Paypal...but the time line takes weeks, sometimes month(s) to solve problem.

This was the first time I've purchased anything from somebody other than B&H, Amazon or the local camera shop.  The purchase price was $150 below the big guys so decided to test the water.   Fortunately, the lens is excellent!  AFMA W=0, T=+1, very sharp across the frame at all focal lengths.  I was able to register the serial number at the Canon registration website and when I called Canon, they said it was covered by warranty.
