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

Canon repair got back to me with an estimate of $861.57. They need to replace more than just the mirror box; apparently they need to replace the mirror, the pentaprism, and basically the whole front of the camera. It's not enough more than my deductible to bother making an insurance claim and possibly getting my rates increased...

Several lessons to be learned from this:

  • Precision Camera is terrible

  • Wear proper shoes

  • The 5D Mark II is still an awesome camera
