Should I buy a broken 5D Mk. II?
Nov 1, 2012

I'm considering buying a used 5D Mk. II for $900. It has about 10,000 actuations on it and displays the "ERR 20" message. Seller believes a mechanical piece of the mirror is broken, so my best guess is that the mirror box and maybe shutter will need replacement. I think this repair usually costs ~$200?

Is this worth it, or too much of a risk?
