Re: 5D Mark III beyond repair? Need repair advice.

I've seen similar damage several times and it usually is repairable. I'm pretty certain only Canon can do it: replacing the mirror box requires all of the software to be reset and even the factory authorized centers don't often have all of the new software.

(To make a long story short, they have to pay a fortune for it and really don't start using it early in a camera's release cycle except for warranty repairs, and warranty repairs don't pay much.)

If, on the other hand, Canon can't repair it, make sure you get it back from them: you can sell the remainders on eBay for a pretty penny (several hundred $ at minimum) for someone like me who wants the parts. It will probably be more than your insurance deductible.
