I waited almost 9 months ... so I can wait another 9 days ... No need for me to send it to Canon service center
True unless someone was going on a photo trip just this very day..
....which will be the case for some.
....or perhaps planning to shoot some natural world event where timing matters to within plus or minus 1-2 days and April 30th falls a few days beyond (and which won't occur again for another 365 days, assuming the person is again even in a location where such event happens a year from now).
So I don't see the need to start getting on the people saying they were urgently wanting it or trying to find out if a drive to their local service center could help. Just because 9 days means nothing to you doesn't mean it means nothing to others.
