Hopefully these starving students will also be eligible for the non-documented CPS discount program on L lenses and the 1DX.  Or maybe that type of gear will be out of their budgets while in school anyways.  Best part of Canadian CPS is the gear discounts and it isn't documented anywhere officially.

The discounts are listed. Go to canon.ca/studentcps and choose "Student CPS Program Details".

Ahh, interesting.  Those discounts make sense for the student market.  I would guess they probably could get the undocumented discounts on the high end gear if they wanted also.  Or maybe not but anyways, seems like a great program for students.

Personally, I think the better choice for "starving students" is to buy used gear. I am currently a "starving student" and I see a much better value in pursuing the used market. The savings on a used camera/lens far outweigh the discounts listed on the CPS website.

The regular CPS-Platinum membership is a far better value.

100%

I have bought exclusively used and refurbished gear since the get go. Canadian prices new are outrageous.

Do they have this program for students in the United States, as well?
