Dropped 7D - what would you do?
Jul 17, 2012

Last night was setting up my 7D on a friend's tripod and the top mount disconnected and it fell off. The camera fell about 5 ft onto a polished wooden floor. It rotated forward and I think the impact was taken across a combo of the top of the lens (15-85) and the top of the flash unit (which was down not up).

On first inspection it still seems to work ok with no visible damage but I haven't had time for an extensive check.

Just wondering whether it's best to send it straight off to Canon service centre for a check-up or leaving it until something looks awry?
