After shooting with my 5D2/24-105L all day without issue (intermittent rain on the body, certainly less than this body/lens combo has been through) I tried to review my images during the ride home and found that the camera wouldn't turn on. Figuring that I had somehow discharged the last half of the battery I didn't think much of it and took it home and put the battery in the charger. It went through the whole charging cycle (started at a single blinking dot) - but no luck with the camera.
As soon as I noticed the camera wasn't turning on I removed the battery - there was some water on the battery door but it didn't seem like anything in the compartment. Now when I put the battery in the camera (no lens, spare CF) The CF LED flashes for about a second, then goes dark - after that nothing makes the camera twitch, save for opening and closing the battery door. With the CF out there is no flash, and it makes no difference whether or not the power switch is on or off when I close the battery door - but I keep getting that flash.
Does anyone have any idea what's going on? I'm on the tail end of my 3 year service contract and will contact them tomorrow if the camera doesn't turn on (it's drying now) - but since it seems to semi-boot, it doesn't seem totally shorted, does it?
Any help would be appreciated, I'm worried about my baby! Also - I'm not around a computer or other body for the next couple days - is there any chance this could have effected the photos? there's no water in or around the CF door.
Very strange, I've been through so much worse with this 5D and my old 20D
