Nearly half of all Canon U.S.A. employees have relocated to the Melville headquarters while the remaining employees will complete the move in March. The new headquarters will serve all North and South American countries and will be one of Canon's three worldwide headquarters, with the other two located in London and Japan.

"One Canon Park will be a symbol of not only our dedication to our employees, but also our dedication to the Long Island community we have called home since 1971."

The mailing address will be: One Canon Park, Melville, NY 11747.

This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending February 16th, 2013
 
In the news...
 
On Monday, we published a reference to a blog post by The Landingfield where you could see microscopic images of a CMOS sensor. Even though the CMOS sensor belonged to a decade old Nikon D2H, the macro images and commentary regarding various design elements made it worthwhile reading for camera enthusiasts.
 
On Tuesday, we reported that Jessops’ website will be re-launching soon. Jessops fell into administration after falling £80 million behind in creditor payments. Of that total, Canon was owed £16.4 million while Nikon was owed £3.3 million.
 
On Wednesday, we reported Nikon’s establishment of a sales and service subsidiary in Indonesia. According to Nikon, P.T. Nikon Indonesia was created to help fortify sales of imaging products and facilitate a more efficient service and support system for the region.
 
In reviews…
 
On Thursday, Bryan published his full review of the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4 L IS USM lens. The lens proved to be a good performer, but not overwhelming so compared to other recent “L” lens releases. The lens’s most notable feature is its impressive macro mode which changes the lens’s maximum magnification value from .21x to .7x – a magnification value unprecedented for a zoom lens in Canon’s lineup.
 
Even considering its value as a general purpose and macro lens replacement, at its current price point, it may find difficulty getting traction in the marketplace until the very reasonably priced 24-105mm f/4 L IS is discontinued.
 
And, for our deal of the week…
 
On Wednesday, we published a deal from BuyDig.com where you could get a Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 manual focus fish-eye lens for crop sensor cameras for $225.00 after a promotion code was applied. The deal was made even sweeter when the price was reduced resulting in a final price of $190.95. That was a savings of $74.00 off an already reduced price elsewhere. Note: Deal has expired.
 
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!

When a Canon Forums user "Kronie" asked the following question:

"Does Canon honor the USA warraties if it's purchased from a non authorised dealer?
 
If I buy a new 5D MKIII from a non authorized dealer do I have a Canon 12 month warranty or not?"

Canon Forum Moderator "Naomi" responded:

"Hi Kronie!
 
As long as the EOS 5D Mark III was purchased New, In box, you should have the same warranty coverage. To help you out, we've included a link to the Service and Support page on our website for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III camera. Click "Warranty Terms" under "Service & Repair", and you'll find a link to the full camera warranty on this page.
 
http://bit.ly/ZCIMZn
 
Hope this helps!"

Note: We have no official documentation from Canon substantiating this moderator's claim that Canon will honor warranty repairs for purchases made from non-authorized dealers; however, there are numerous reports that Canon is relatively loose when interpreting its own warranty repair policies.
 
Update: According to a visitor to the site, the moderator's comment was deleted from the original thread (even though the reply still appears in search queries). Therefore, it's likely safe to assume Canon did not feel the moderator's comments represented its policies correctly. (Thanks Timothy)
