5D shorted by 85mm 1.2L II
Jul 20, 2009

Twice now mounting a Canon 85mm 1.2L II has caused my 5D (Mark ONE) to have a failure in the PCB, which leaves the camera shorted and unable to turn on.

Anyone else have this happen? Which body/lens combo caused it?

In both times I had the power off while changing lens, also there was nothing mounted in the hot shoe.
