Canon, as always, has a big CPS presence at the Olympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.

The Canon Professional Services (CPS) headquarters is at the media center  at the Alpensia resort. Canon says they’ll have 60 tech reps and service reprensentatives from 10 different countries, speaking 10 different languages ready to provide services such as cleaning, testing, and calibration.

Dan Havlik from Shutterbug sent us a link to a few images of what it looks like at the CPS Canon Depot:

The expense that goes into supporting events around the world gives you a idea as to what the actual cost to produce a lens or camera is.  Likely less than 1/4 the selling price, probably 1/6th.  The huge expenses of distributing, advertising, repairing, and supporting them plus the dealer markup is a lot.
