Extended warranties

6 months 4 weeks ago #683120 by David Dettman
Morning, can you suggest an extended warranty program that is tailored towards camera gear? This will be for Sony a7R III.

Can you help me please?

I normally don't buy these sort of things.  Actually I have never bought an extended warranty.  Heck, never needed the original.   

Why do you think you need one?

Sorry can't help you.

Probably not real helpful to the OP since the camera comes with a 5 year warranty, just like Nikons and Canons.

I'm not at all clear why one needs an extended warranty for a new product with that coverage.

Thank you all, but where are you seeing this has a 5 year warranty?  It has a 1 year warranty.  5 year would be a nice peace of mind.

Worst. Website. Ever.

It appears I was mistaken. Yet another reason to not buy a Sony product. At that price point, they should stand behind it a bit longer.

You want 5 years? Buy Nikon.
