I don't live in USA, so they will not do it free for me, i hate the service here, but sometimes we don't have any other choices.

I will see if they can do it free, they are not same as Canon USA service.

Hi Tareq,

I have 2 5D's, and the one I purchased second hand in 2010 (2005 serial number) dropped the mirror a couple of months later during a trip to Bali.

Canon Europe didn't even ask for shipping costs, fixed the problem and returned the camera cleaned and ready to shoot.

The dropped mirror is a known and very well documented problem, and Canon is very professional about fixing this particular problem.

BTW, I purchased it through a reseller for 850€, but it didn't even have a single light mark on the body, and came in the original box with 2 batteries, one of which died within a month. The strap hadn't even been used at all.
