Where to send Canon lenses for service?

Just wondering if anyone can recommend a proper Canon service centre to send lenses to for basic service.I use my lenses in the field quite a bit,and in the last twelve months really used them a lot for a paying job,which has finished ,and now earning good money.None of my lenses have major issues,and are well looked after,but there is always dust and blood in the field,and want them cleaned and checked/calibrated and to be as perfect as possible,I have another paying job of a different nature,and gear needs to be ship shape.

Is there anywhere in Brisbane? or maybe somewhere in Sydney?

Thanks.

No Canon in Brisbane any more. Only Syd.

Go to Canon website, fill out service form, instructions on website.

Sydney Chris is probably your best bet, they have been highly recommended by a few people i know that have had good service.

Used to be a Canon place at Cannon Hill (coincidence) where you could drop off repairs. They still shipped down to Sydney for the repair work, but I found it convenient to drop in somewhere local. Closed now.

Chris, dose your lens really need attention, they are pretty tough and can withstand the elements quite well, maybe just a tidy up on your part, or do you sense something is juts not quite right.

The L lenses are fine,the EF-S 17-55 F 2.8 IS,when in IS seems to occasionally jump and 'shudder' a little bit more than usual in the last couple of weeks,I have been turning off camera,and then wait and turn on again.I could just turn the IS off (I mean we all use to get by in the olden days before IS ).

Anyhow,this lens is a great lens,the AF -well it feels as if it could focus on a black cat on a new moon night-its so fast!,this lens also seems to have a reputation for gathering dust behind front element-although I have had very little issue there-always had a U.V filter on.But if its of to Sydney for a tune up-it may as well get a clean too.

Anyhow-I'd like it looked at and given a service, before next job-a modeling job,so all needs to be ship shape.Although I image the off camera flash will be used a bit,so I could get by without IS.But still will go ahead and get it serviced-this lens is great at slow speed at F 2.8 on lots of pre dawn/dusk landscape shoots.
