BTW Have fun, I'm quite jealous.

This is a 2018 trip --- probably in May but 'ya gotta plan. 'Ya gotta cross all the "t's and dot all the i's...

This will be my third trip to Africa and I simply can't wait. It really never gets old if you're into the sort of thing.

I apologize. I was re-reading some posts and I realized I might of been a bit snarky. This was not my intention.

If you are going on an actual safari, it may be best to have the lens cleaned AFTER your trip. ;-)a

Same goes shooting implosions. Dust is everywhere. Shoot Sunday Morning, drive less than 90 minutes to Canon Repair Facility in New Jersey on Monday Morning. And with CPS Gold, I drive home with gear 48 hours later, sometimes 24 hours.
For me, with the Canon Facilty so close, it's definitely worth the cost.

Join Canon Professional Services. My membership cost $100 a year. It consists of repair discounts, faster turn-around times, and I can send 5 items per year (bodies or lenses) for free cleaning and the 11 point maintenance check.

Doesn't that in theory require being a professional? Or does Canon not care as long as you have enough points?
