Canon Japan Introduces Flat Rate Repairs for Consumer ILCs & Lenses

Canon Japan has instituted a flat rate repair service fee for consumer grade DSLRs (Rebel-series), EOS M cameras and EF-S / EF-M lenses.
 
We can't help but wonder if some of the other regional Canon branches will offer a similar repair program in the near future.
