Also they indicated this might quite a costly operation, approx
500-700 Euro (close to 800 $Usd)...

If I was in your position and wanted to continue using an E10/20 I would look to buy a second hand or new camera from ebay or a supplier like http://www.digitaldepot.co.uk . It would cost you less than the repair cost you have been quoted. I think the appearance of so manty new SLR cameras has given rise to a large number of low cost offers. Do you have some idea of how the pin was bent? it is likely that something like dirt or grit etc was on a card you inserted. This sort of thing is not a normal wear and tear failure I think.
