A Rundown of Using Canon Factory Service
« on: September 10, 2013, 03:33:43 PM »

I finally needed to use factory repair services but couldn't find real clear instructions or a rundown of what happens and what to expect, so I did it myself.  You can see what I did and what happened in the post.  Long story  short, if they had done the job right the first time it would have been a very good and fast experience, but in the end it took over a month.  Still, the cost was very fair and everyone I spoke to was very professional.  LINK

I've sent Canon two lens. One damages by my own doing, one I got used at a great deal and decided to get it tuned to like new performance. Not inexpensive but both times I did this, I was thrilled with the results. In both cases, shipping to Canon from Santa Fe, I don't recall the work taking more than about two weeks.

I have a 5DII coming back today.  Bad USB port.   

6 days door to door.  Repair price $233.  Silver CPS.

All in all a very good transaction and if the camrera is properly repaired I'm very happy indeed.

That would have been me if they did it right the first time, they have some great turn around when the parts are in stock!
