RIP..My 50D and 100-400mmIS

...A foolish mistake by me, and my 50D and prized 100-400mmIS took a hard fall.

From looking at the 50D is dead.

I'll try to repair my 100-400mmIS.

ADVICE NEEDED....I'll be using my backup 30D.

When I send my 100-400mm for repair Monday, should I also send my 30D with the lens so they calibrate both of them after the repair?

If the repaired 100-400mm measures-up to my standards, I'll buy an old 50D. (I love this camera)

If not, I guess I'll shoot with my 30D and buy an old 400mm or 100-400mm.

I'm bummed-out and can't sleep well. I saw $3,000 vanished in front of my eyes.


Mirror is stuck in place and serious mount damage. Battery cover broke-off after the fall.

Lens mount damaged, with attached 50D parts. I see no cracks in the lens
