    Luckily I live near CRJ (Camera Repair Japan) and can get anything under warranty serviced (not repaired) for free.

    Had my Sigma lens re chipped for the cost of gas.

    I also live half a mile form KEH's main warehouse.

    Reminds me of a time when a customer brought in a 17-55 and had (somehow) sheered the mount off of it. I wrapped the bulk of the lens in some bubble wrap and put the mount and all the other tiny parts in a plastic bag and sent it in to Canon for the guy, A few days later I got a call from a tech with the lens... he went "Okay... so... Yeah... I have your repair right in front of me... and yeah... Do you have the rest of the lens? I can't do a repair when all you send is the mount.." I was all WTF... because I knew I sent everything.. I explained that to him and he put me on hold for about 10 minutes. Turns out someone in the receiving department only pulled out the plastic baggie, and left the rest of the lens in the box. When he came back.. he said "Yeah.. sorry about that... I'll tell you what... this looks like a manufactures defect.. I think I'll have to mark it under warranty."

    cliffs: Canon repaired a 1000$ lens with obvious damage from misuse for free.

    Yup. I've had nothing but great experiences with CFS. They replaced shutters out of warranty and a scratched LCD at no charge. :cool:

    I've never had to deal with them, knock on wood, and only time I tried they were closed for Columbus Day :wtf: when I was in irvine and wanted a good ole cleaning.


    My dad has dealt with them many times though, and with unbelievable success. They still clean his d60 for free, but the amazing part is that he keeps breaking his printsers, i9100 and s9000, and they overnight him a new one first, then he puts the old one back in the box and ships it away, and they appologize to him for the inconvience :eek: I don't know what he did or said, but theres definetly something in his customer profile they're affraid of.

    Did you send it to the one in NJ?

    I just sent them my 24-70 Wednesday, which my GF dropped. I hope I get a similar "cheap" bill. :x: It's still under warranty and doesn't show signs of being dropped, not even a scratch, but the focus is fucked. Waiting...

    They sent me back 1 of the $100 vouchers. If they had used it, repair would have been almost free.

    PM me your address, the $100 voucher is yours.
