CPS-Canon Professional Servies.
« on: February 02, 2013, 05:31:47 PM »
So.. Anyone use CPS? Been thinking about it as I have a few longer tele's I like to get cleaned at least once per year + 2 bodies. I am mostly Interested in the gold tier as for $100 a year it offers lots of things I find useful. Anyone else use this service and can comment on the good/bad/ugly with it?

I use it, same level, and it is just cheap insurance for me.  I haven't had to use it much, but on the infrequent repairs (24-105L) and 1D3 & 1ds3 "box fixes", they were very quick and very helpful.  I should probably use their cleanings a bit more often and have the bodies checked over, but I typically just do sensor cleans myself. 

Maybe one of these days I'll borrow a body or something, but I just don't have that much need for that side of it.

THanks. I signed up anyway mainly for lens testing and cleanings.

Does anyone have any insight as to why CPS provides 8 points for the 100-400mm v1 and the same for the brand new 100-400mm II yet the 70-200mm 2.8 II gets 12 points at the same price point?

It doesn't affect my level but I thought it strange when I registered my new lens

The 100-400 II isn't even listed yet, that's why.  You must have registered the new lens as a Mk I.  It usually takes Canon a few weeks/months to add new products to the CPS list.  I had to email them about the 16-35 f/4 IS to get them to add it.  I bet it will be 12 pts once added.

Looks like the Canadian CPS has done away with points and gone straight to "must have atleast 2x body X or better plus 2x L lens or better

I used their loan service many times. They loaned me 5x 600rts before I bought them. Great service for that aspect alone.

I've had some of my gear serviced and got a 5D MK III loaner from them.  They've always been prompt for the short time I've worked with them.  I also have the gold service.
What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

The MkII was listed and I just double checked.  It is the 4th lens on the list on the "Add" drop down list

It didn't listed when I logged in that day, but I see it now and you're right it is 8 points.  I might have missed it the other day because it's out of order.  I would write them to ask why the new lens isn't worth more than 8 points.  They are good about email, so I'd give it a shot.
