Canon General / Canon Loyalty Program question
« on: April 21, 2014, 10:56:35 AM »
Hi guys,

I've been toying around with the idea of using CLP to get a 5Dmk3 and was wondering if they have to show refurb stock on their website?

If they have to show stock, can you go on a wait list?

Just curious, since it's (another) big purchase, I need it go go smoothly lest the "I told you so" police get me  ;D

Google is funny . . . you ask a common linux question and the first 10 searches return a "you should search" kind of answer.

I thought we were better than this :(

Why 6D vs. other bodies I'm sure you have at your disposal?

Just curious :)

What? no IS?


 ;D  I'd be in if I were still shooting crop; love 50mm on EF-S bodies.

Hrm . . . if the 7Dmk2 comes out, I could be in trouble though.

Any chance this is a move to start enforcing the "professional" label that we've discussed at length?

Seems odd, my bank hasn't required a signature on anything in years, save loan contracts.

Seriously? The Facebook one and the smartphone?

AFAIK, I've taken the least shots (total) on my iPhones (3 of them) over the years of anyone I know who owns a smartphone. 

My wife, while I was shooting this weekend, asked me to use her iPhone 4 for her . . .  :o  I asked her if she wanted me to take a REAL photograph as well . . .

Will Canon and Nikon only pretend to compete, but actually make agreements to launch their equivalent models at the same time? ??? They act together to maintain the duopoly, as two teams take turns so that only they win the championship every year? ::) Conspiracy theory. :P
You know what? Living in the US and dealing with both phone/internet/tv/cell carriers . . . I'm surprisingly okay if that's the case.  So long as there's no price-fixing involved, go for it  ;D

I'm getting tired of the 'free market' in the US that has equated for so long to the customer being shafted.

Has there ever been a 7DII release-date related rumour at the CR2 level? (but as they say, sooner or later, it'll eventually be true lol)

Hold on there partner......nobody said anything about a release date.  This is just the announcement.  nobody said anything about release dates...... :) :) :) :)

For what is expected of the new 7D (essentially, for it to be as much better than the current lineup than the 7D was in it's day), they should seriously consider not announcing until they're ready to bring it to market (meaning only need to populate the supply chain).

I've harped on this before, but one of the best things Apple did was pull out of the product release cycle based on certain conference dates.  Why bring a product to market at the market's cycle and not your own design/test/produce cycle? 

This goes, too, for the people saying "how will canon answer the Lego Mindstorm DSLR market?" --- well, while it's healthy to keep an eye on your competitors, isn't it best to chart the path best for you?

All that said, and back to my initial point, for how good the 7D is, and how 'late' it seems to all of us, we're all inferring that it's going to be REALLY good and NO FLAWS since they've had time to work on it . . . anyone who thinks it's not going to be total sticker shock, though, is kidding themselves ;D

THIS is why I watch comedy; it's done by funny people.

April Fools is just like every other holiday where people who aren't very good at something try it.  St Pattys & New Years are for people who aren't really good at drinking.   Valentines for those who can't remember to be romantic on a regular basis . . . april fools, we all have to put reading the news to one side for a day while people who aren't funny try to be.

*sigh* I might actually get some work done today. Dang.

Very uninteresting & unappealing list

What about your spouse being a great photographer? I'd rather have someone I can talk to and discuss things with on a shoot...

Just be happy if you have one that doesn't keep picking blown out/overexposed photos or complains that their complexion is too dark (when you've color corrected it accurately).

18c is the only thing *I* could see there . . .

Patience would be a good one (since you're not going to let them see the pics until they're post-processed).  Please, please please stop asking to see the shot on a 3" screen. I can tell you if it was a good shot or not without looking.

This was a particularly good deal. Passed on it since I have to get serious about selling old gear first.

That probably won't happen any time soon  ;D

Let's hope not.  Just don't tell us about products until we can buy them . . .

How long did the 8mm take to become available?

at this price, does it even matter?  An out of warranty, used copy is likely more lol
I think a refurb through loyalty program is something like $2750 . . . $200 more for one with a warranty, that's like new.
