canon factory cleaning costs
« on: January 19, 2012, 07:06:53 PM »
Anyone knows what is the average costs for a lens or camera body, clean and/or check service?
trying to determine if their CPL memberships are anything worth:
the gold member offers two free check and clean - body or lens - and costs $100 per year
Canon shooter, but anything goes as ammunition (L, non L, Zeiss, Leica, Rokinon,Sigma)

Last October I sent a 5D Classic to Canon for cleaning, total cost was $201.00. Not sure if that's the average, but made me join CPS Gold.

Holy crap, it makes me appreciate my CPS Gold membership with 2 "free" cleanings included with the $100 membership.
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

I know when I joined Platinum for the first time and had five lenses and one body to be cleaned, it paid for itself, especially with free shipping both ways.  I also got a neat little bag and really comfortable shoulder straps.  Additionally, the loaner program is fantastic.

I just found this on the US-based CPS website:

Quote
CPS has replaced its equipment-based requirements program with a points system to better accommodate professionals who own various types of Pro Canon equipment.

Does anyone know if those changes could be expected for CPS Europe as well? For now my equipment does not meet the minimum requirements yet. I would highly appreciate having a points based system, because that way my equipment would even qualify for the gold membership.

My expense to clean the sensor on my 20D last February was $20 for the cleaning plus $30 each way for shipping.  I've invested in a sensor cleaning kit since and found a local shop, in business since the film days, who can do what I can't handle for under $50.  I'd prefer to pay the extra money when I need a cleaning and have my camera in my hands in 48 hours.

You wouldn't happen to know if this applies worldwide, would you?

Doesn't look like it... perhaps they will be changing it worldwide?
