Re: Hammer it back.

The shock of hitting the bottom will disrupt the shutter mechanism ( at least the shutter and prob. a lot more). Your only hope in bending it back would be to put it in a press (a vise-like apparatus) and gently s q u e e z e it back into shape. To keep from crushing the pentaprism you will have to mould something around the top to distribute the pressure. Perhaps some very firm styrofoam cut out to conform to the top of the body... I can see that this will very probably not have a good outcome...
