    Did you know, it costs $120 to open up an L lens for cleaning and servicing? That's purely for service, no parts replacement. It'll have you weighing out the pros and cons of buying a warranty (or not) at the very least.

    Hmm.... I should have added this at the start.

    This applies more to stuff like TVs & fridges.

    I will say it again.................

    BOLLOCKS

    Have you bought a plasma TV or fridge with inbuilt CPU and LCD lately ?

    Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see. (except when I tell you )

    I deal with extended warranty. If you know what it is about, you definately benifit from it.

    Because there is normally quite a bit of margin in extended warranty cost, barter for it !!!

    Use Murphy law.... you buy it... you won't need it. You don't buy it, it will go wrong within 13 months

    If you pay for extra 2 years warranty (giving 3 years total) try for 6% of cost of item.
    The company is still making a profit.

    Time, is an effortless construction :)
