Recommend extended service contract for 5dmkII?

Pardon the noob-ness of this question (and monitors, please feel free to move to a better topic or thread), but the Mark II is my first SLR camera:

Do you experienced guys recommend extended service contracts? If so, which one(s)?

Thanks!

NO!!! The camera is going to be obsolete before it breaks of old age, and if you drop it the service contract means jack.

Some service contracts, like SageMax offered by B&H, specifically cover accidental drops, even in the fine print.
