I was wondering what peoples thoughts are on purchasing extended warranties on cameras & lenses.
When my daughter got her Canon 700D & 18-135 lens, I bought an extended 4 year warranty for $109. I figured that, as she is a "casual worker/student/stay in bed as long as possible" type person, she wouldn't be able to afford any repairs if anything went wrong after the standard warranty ran out. The financial burden would then obviously flow through to The Bank of Dad.
I'll be getting a 70D for myself in a week or so, and I was wondering if I should bother or not.
