May I ask the 1D2N owners and experts to assist me ... although I have a couple of bodies (actually 3, also having a 50D for sale), I always have had a wish to have (and try out for an extended period) a pro Series 1 body. I think I have enough EF lenses to use on it to have a good experience, and prices for a reasonable 1D2N appear to be right for me.
I feel sufficiently capable of judging condition, etc., but the shutter failure spectre is scaring me off.
Let's assume the worst ... I buy a 1DM2N and the shutter immediately fails. What does it cost to replace and repair?
I am a Canadian CPS member ... will that affect the cost and availability of repair?
I know Canon dropped the 1D2 from it's service list. In the future when this happens to the 1D2N, could one get a shutter replaced anywhere other than at Canon themselves?
Thanks for your experience and information.
