5dmkIII and warranty
« on: July 11, 2012, 06:43:59 PM »
Do you all who owns the full frame bodies buy extended warranties with your purchase ? Is it worth the 109$ on extending warranty by 3 years....

Generally, you actually extend it by 1 year.  You get a 3 year total warranty for $109, but the first year is the Canon Warranty, if you used a American Express card, they give you the 2nd year warranty at no charge, so you are really paying for that 3rd year.
Most issues will happen in the first 3 months, by the time the camera is 2 years old, there will be very few units failing.
