I am going to be purchasing a Canon 40D in the near future (no changing my mind ) and in going through all the options the S.O. raised the topic of an extended warranty. Some times these things seem to have more exit clauses than anything else. I will most likely be going through Adorama, Amazon, B&H or Circuit City. Having done some research all I seem to be able to find is information on everything but the experience people have when they need to use the warranty which would seem to be the vital factor . The companies I see involved are Mack (Adorama/B&H), NEWCorp (amazon) and CircuitCity Advantage. It would appear that all require you to send in the device for repair but the cost seems to range from $70 for the Mack to $130 for the basic CC or $220 for the extended CC (2 years all around). Any personal experiences? Any friends/associates had to use one of these services? Did you actually get an extended warranty? Look forward to your responses.
