LAOWA Limited Warranty

Thank you for purchasing LAOWA professional lenses and accessories.

Please file your Bill of Sale and warranty card in a safe place.

The 3-year warranty is limited to repair, adjustment and/or replacement (at LAOWA or its affiliates’ option) of defective parts, free of charge (excluding your cost to ship the lens to the LAOWA service center). Company liability is limited to actual cost of the item.

Do not send your LAOWA product to the service center until you receive a Merchandise Repair Number (MRN) from the LAOWA office. The service center will not accept repairs without an MRN number on the box.

Warranty is non-transferable.
This warranty covers defects encountered during normal use and does not apply to the following situations:

1) Equipment has been disassembled or serviced by an unauthorized service center.

2) Damage caused by modifications, mishandling, abuse, accident, sand, corrosives, water damage* or not following operating instructions.

3) Valid proof of purchase is not provided.

4) Damage caused by acts of nature (including, but, not limited to fires, floods or earthquakes).

* While the front section of the LAOWA 24mm f14 Probe lens can be inserted into water (up to 1-2” below the power supply connection), damage due to heat, cold, acids or other corrosive substances is not covered. The lens and barrel must be cleaned immediately after use to avoid buildup of materials on the surface. Do not submerge if there is a chip or crack on the front surface.

Attention: Do not send any products to the authorized service center until you have spoken with someone from our technical support team.

Note: Local law may provide different rights and you may be covered by consumer protection laws or regulations in the state of purchase or, if different, your state of residence, and the benefits conferred by LAOWA’s Limited Warranty are in addition to all rights and remedies conveyed by such consumer protection laws and regulations, including but not limited to these additional rights.

This warranty may be changed or modified without prior notice.
