A couple of my DSLRs need to go back to Canon for warranty work to rectify a minor problem or two. The 5D needs a mirror assembly repair, and the 1D Mark III needs a couple of AF fixes. With a view to getting this sorted out over the winter I thought I’d price up the cost of shipping a body back to Canon.
For a 1.5kg package valued at £2500 Royal Mail want the princely sum of £11.20 to guarantee delivery by 1pm the next day. Parcel Force want £120 for next day delivery of the exact same package. I wonder which I should choose?
