Dear Platinum member,
For the launch of the Canon EOS-1D X, Canon would like to offer priority purchase for CPS Platinum members, as our most valued customers, we want to ensure we continue to add value to the CPS program where we can. As established professionals, we understand it is important to have the right and best tools for the job particularly with the Euros and Olympics coming up. If you have already placed a deposit or are going to soon, please ensure you have taken the following 2 steps to ensure your purchase gets priority:
1. Place a deposit with your local EOS Professional Centre. Your nearest can be found at www.canon.co.uk/eospro-network
2. Once you receive your order details, please send an email with the confirmation details to the CPS UK Pro Rep; <name deleted> at <name deleted>@cuk.canon.co.uk
Once the Pro Rep has received your confirmation, we will arrange for that order to be given priority and your dealer will inform you when your camera has arrived and collect in the normal way.
We appreciate your interest in the Canon EOS-1D X and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing Canon.
Thanks Asposium!I'm Platinum and hadn't received such letter/eMail.
Are we buying straight from Canon?
Curt, so the letter is from CPS UK that has what they call EOS Professional Centre. Calumet and Park Camera are one of them. I guess they are kind of affiliated dealers. Sounds like if Platinum members pre-order from these affiliated dealers, at least CPS can identify priority easier.
"...order to be given priority and your dealer will inform you when your camera has arrived and collect in the normal way..."
Is Canon CSP USA platinum membership getting the same benefit?
I didn't get anything!!
