why worry so much about repairs? you have warranty and replacement value insurance to take care of that. as for resale value, camera body is much more of a problem because cameras have a much shorter life span. i think it is very unfair of canon (same as other manufacturers) to not offer investment protection plan for at least top of the range bodies.

Its more the OP that is worried about repairs/spares, hence I addressed the point he raised.

As for bodies I personally think the residuals you see on 1D family bodies is actually quite good considering their shorter lifespan (both mechanically and in terms of being superceded by newer models). The product cycle for the pro bodies is still quite reasonable for Canon, especially considering the machine gun rate that the lower end spews out new models.
