Sony will soon offer (at the end of October) a Premium service for after-sales and warranty. It will target pros and top-flight amateur photographers. For a period of one, two or three years (at the price of 109, 219 or 329€), the customer will get a warranty extension (directly from Sony Style Georges V or from the consumer support department of Sony France) associated with some complementary services:
- Yearly, professional cleaning of the camera sensor with opening of the mirror cage and removal of the sensor itself
- Repair priority
- Availability of an equivalent DSLR during repair time
- Door-to-door service (the camera is collected and returned at the location of your choice)
But there is still an open question (for now): Will this be applicable out of France (I only got the confirmation from Paris)?
