I don't know how much Canon equipment you own but if you own enough L lenses and a couple of bodies you can apply to become a member of the Canon professional Service. This strictly speaking is mean for working professionals but if you have enough kit you may be able to gain entry.

One of the main benefits (and why I mention it) is because they guarantee preferantial treatment and 'queue jumping' for equipment repairs...in most cases a 1 day turn around Obviously if you are working professional and something goes wrong with your equipment then your livelihood is potentially on the line.

On saying that a 5 day turnaround sounds very reasonable to me. Keep us informed on how it goes and also if the lens performs to your expectations on its return.
