$326.46 to repair it! :cry: On top of the $100 to renew my CPS membership I was probably better off selling it. :o

oh man! I don't know what canon did differently in this one?

Me either! :( I even called to make sure they were applying the CPS discount and they said yes. Even the lady at CPS the other day said $250. So I don't know why it is so much. Maybe some additional parts and/or labor is required for some reason.

I'd call back again and tell them what you were quoted and you're wondering why the total was more than that . Does't hurt to get them to fess up as to why the additional cost and if you have to ask to talk to a manager if you don't get the right answers . Squeeky wheel gets the grease ;)

True that. If you don't ask you won't get.

I think I will do that tomorrow. I did call to confirm that I was receiving my CPS discount, but didn't mention the quote.

Called Canon again this morning. Was told that the initial quotes for shutter are typically labor only as not all "shutter problems" require a whole shutter replacement. Some just require cleaning and others may need a blade replaced or straightened. In my case the entire shutter needed replacement so that accounts for the difference in price.

That sucks, but $435 for a mk2 with 0 shutter count is a pretty good deal, isn't it? Try to look at the positive side. The only other low shutter count cameras you are going to get for $400 is a used 30D or XSi. Stinks that it broke, but nothing you can do about it now. You just have to look at it from the point of view that you need a camera and getting it repaired gets you the nicest camera for the money.

I think I've already done that, yeah? ;)

It's worth more to me than anyone else since I can't afford a new camera. It's either $435 for the repair (including CPS membership) or $1100+ for a 7D in the loyalty program, plus a grip, extra batteries, and larger CF cards.

Well, yeah I'm still a little down. I'd rather have a MKII with a working shutter of 100,000 and already paid for than a MKII with 0 shutter count and $435 spent. ;) Luckily this camera is still in mint condition and all else seems to be working fine (fingers crossed, knocking on wood). I don't mind shooting the 30D every now and then, but I miss the feel, speed, and balance of the MKII. :)

I haven't checked lately, but I'm guessing somewhere between 95,000 and 100,000.

Given the shutter unit doesn't come as seperate parts, I think they're telling you porkies. There is only one part number for the shutter so you can't get blades on their own from Canon spares. As for "straightening" blades, if they have a reason to bend, then the unit should be replaced anyway...


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", 1D MK II converted for IR, and now an M5

I sent my 1D MarkII in last week for a shutter replacement.Because of the holiday it didn't get in the system until Tuesday. I got an email yesterday at 11:45 am with the estimate, I called immediately and paid the estimate. Fed Ex delivered it today at 1:30 pm. A 1 day turn around!!!!! This was the New Jersey repair center, total cost was $328.60.

Got mine back on Tuesday. They replaced both the shutter and pentaprism assembly. Then adjusted exposure and cleaned the unit.

With or without CPS discount?
