| p.1 #7 · Canon charge for clean and check on 1D MarkIII? |
Yeah, the $100 for the gold membership is worth it IMO. Expedited service, free loaner rentals and two free check/cleans. Canon NJ has gone beyond just the check and clean for me in the past... Such as tightening the zoom ring on my 24-105 from creep (which is usually not something they do for a check/clean).
I am renting a 8-15L for my trip next week... All I pay is return shipping. From lensrentals, it would cost me $120 for the same rental period. Already paid for itself!
I need to do the loaner stuff more often though. Its a great way to try stuff you can't normally afford or want to loan. I did a 300 f/2.8 last year and that was quite fun!
I am going to send in my 5D3 and 70-200 II for the free check/cleans in November after most of my fall shooting is done. When I get my two other vouchers at the beginning of the new year I will send in my 24-105L and keep the last one for another time, most likely for the body again in summertime.
