Canadian D3/D3X Extended Service Program
I received the following email from my camera store today and I though other Canadian shooters might be interested.
Subject: Industry Leading Product Support Program
Attached please find details of Nikon Canada’s exciting, new D3/D3X Extended Service Program. All the services, as described are applicable for a period of two years from the date of original purchase, and include Unlimited Image Sensor Cleanings; Two Comprehensive Check-ups and Cleanings; Routine Adjustments; and Firmware Updates as needed. This program is offered at no cost to the consumer provided they are a Canadian resident and their D3/D3X camera was purchased from an Authorized Nikon Canada Dealer.
Not only does this phenomenal offer apply to all new purchases from March 30, 2009 but it also grandfathers all new D3/D3X bodies purchased from an Authorized Nikon Canada Dealer since the launch of these models until two years after the date of original purchase, or until March 30, 2010, whichever period is greater.
We will print descriptive inserts in both English and French for all D3/D3X cameras currently in NCI’s inventory and will also provide you with additional copies for your dealers’ inventories. If the consumer wishes to extend the Service Program for a third year, they may do so at a cost of $300.00 by contacting any one of NCI’s three service depots.
Irrelevant of disruptive low prices from US web sites, or what our competitors may claim, the D3/D3X Extended Service Program clearly positions Nikon at the forefront of customer support for Canadian Professional Photographers.
