Just wondered if any of you have had that sickening feeling of where you think you have killed your camera or lens, I have....
Recently covered a wedding and whilst changing my lens somehow I dropped my 5D2, now all around me was grass and on top of that 4 inches of snow, but guess what I was stood on a small patio that had been cleared of snow for the guests.
SMACK went the 5D2 right on the stone slab, S#+T I almost shouted out but then relised lots of guests looking at me with sorry looks on their faces.
To my amazement when I picked it up it all looked fine and still is fine it landed on the battery grip and luckily enough never had a lens on the front, the 580 on top of it felt all loose around the mount but still worked but after a few hours it parted with the mount wires and all
Cant moan though the repair cost me £50.00 could have been worse.
