But I would like to see the full list for my country in advance so I can see whether it might be worth for me to register or not. Ideally as .pdf for download. I dont want to register and give Canon all my data for free and do all the work to fill in everything only to find out that my total is 99 points ... :)
"We have over 3,000 Canon products eligible for registration - including most of our cameras, lenses, printers, and even accessories. Remember to add both old and new equipment, and even Canon products bought outside of your home country could give you points."

It would be a long list...

i can handle picking a few entries from a "long list" - no problem. and can likely also perform the "complex math" to add up points for my gear myself.

thats why i'd like a downloadable .pdf or even better - a .csv file. all products, all countries.

until i know my points beforehand i will not provide my data to Canon for free. they are getting a lot of valuable information from their customers. gear identified down to serial, full sales channel and sales price data, plus a nice data set on each registered user. they could likely not buy that data set any other way. and cps "for free" is probably caused by low take-up rates for the previous, paid model. so i dont really feel canon is doing me a huge favour.

in short: cards on the table Canon, then i might play. :)

Canon USA point can also be pretty whacky. My 300/2.8 IS (I) gets zero points, while the MPE 65 gets 8, same as a TSE 24. And they still have not fixed the MT24/26 distinction, my 26 still comes up as a 24. E-mailed them months ago. Not worried, still qualify for platinum, though just use silver for potential repairs.
