Has any one used Greentoe yet? What type of discounts are available?

When I don't find buyers on a Google search, I'll meet them at a place such as Taco Bell, McDonald's, or in front of a police station.
This experience is precisely why I would like to see a way to Buy & Sell here on CR. But I understand it's not easy for the mods, just more work. And CR will have to deal with all the scammers/spammers/trash that having a selling forum attracts.
It's like every picnic draws unwanted insects and potential bad weather when all you wanted to do was enjoy the day with some tasty snacks and a good drink. Sigh...
Fred Miranda has a buy/sell. I haven't used it, I hang out here more, but it looks like it might work.
Canon USA, UK, etc are their own P&L centres. Why should they cross subsidise via way of a warranty an item bought from another country.
Simple answer: ONE company. ONE world. ONE global economy. Not only for Canon, companies, makers, sellers of products. But also for us, buyers, customers.
We don't tell Canon in what countries to manufacture their products. Canon is in no position to tell us, their customers, where to buy their products - as long as they come from their factories. They should be grateful when we spend our money on their products rather than on those from competitors. It would be in Canon's own best interest to keep us, their customers as happy as they possibly can. That includes the very best aftersales service they can possible pony up and offer to us. For all their products, for all their customers, no matter where we live, work and purchase Canon products.
Fair is fair.
All I wish canon came with a camera with higher dynamic range sensor.I don't need high resolution.
You should demand your money back.
They list the benefits. Its free. What is not to get? You get those benefits. They get a way to send you information to try to sell you more things. (it's an exchange)
An example of those other things?: CPS Gold and Platinum.
is it working? "and I might upgrade at some point in the future". Hmmmm.
Thanks for reading the part of my post where I said, "Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining - I realize that you get what you pay for - I'm just curious..."
Wait? You didn't read that?
Hi! Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed your post. I read your whole post and I responded. I disagree. Statistically it was bound to happen. Reading up and down the responses, has anyone agreed with you?
What is there to disagree or agree with?
I posted a question.
Unless you're disagreeing with my assertion that I want to know if there is more to CPS Silver than I currently understand, there quite literally is nothing to disagree or agree with.
In actuality, statistically - it impossible to disagree with a question. The chance of it happening is 0.
I think you're misreading my post.
"but it seems Silver is more or less just about using minor benefits for the purposes of data collection and mining (equipment owned, type of photography, etc.)" plus lots of support for that. I disagree with that. My fault, I assumed you'd understand I disagreed with the declarative statement, and all the support around it.
The point of Silver membership is to get your gear repaired quickly. If you are a professional, a quick turnaround is imperative. Without a membership in CPS, my understanding is that you are in line with everyone who owns a Canon product that needs repair. My understanding is that the turnaround time can be 2-4 weeks. If you are a CPS member, the turnaround is quick, usually about 5 days including shipping both ways. The Gold or Platinum memberships, I believe, can offer even faster turnaround. I have been a CPS member now for probably 30 years. I don't recall when the program commenced, but as soon as it did, I gratefully signed up. Before the advent of CPS, I had a couple of not-so-good encounters with 3rd party repairs. Canon's professional products are very durable, so I haven't needed repairs all that often. Canon has all the tools, something that 3rd party repair facilities will likely not have. If you've dropped a lens, for instance, having the collimators to test the repair is very important. CPS has always done a great job for me. I have found the prices to be fair as well.
Here is how I see the 2015 lineup:
3d: 46mp sony sensor, 4k video? $4000+?
5d4: 22mp+ canon sensor? 7D2 autofocus and video? $3000-4000?
6d2: 22mp+ canon sensor?, multiple cross type AF and better center point? $2000+?
Look at the Yen / Dollar The Yen is rather weak (you can get many more yen per dollar than six months or a year ago).
Canon can sell at a lower $ price and still get the same (or more) Yen.
That only helps for things that cost Canon Yen, all the stuff they pay for outside Yen, like raw materials, shipping, everything made in Thailand and the other 'foreign' plants costs more because of the Yen slip. Of course companies like Canon should be hedging to mitigate the general exchange rate changes, but going either way has its drawbacks.
I don´t care if it´s canon or sony sensors as longs as they are the best sensors i can buy.+1
unfortunately canon has not the best sensors for some time.
so i applaud if they would use sonys sensors until they get their act together again.
i do see a problem with DP. but who knows.
I think it would be a mistake for them to surrender chip design--both for Canon and for the users. There needs to be MORE sensor competition--not less.
+1, totally agree! Canon just needs to actually compete on the larger format sensor front. I really hope they do next year...
