I droped my 50mm 1.8 on the stone floor, and it got almost destroid. Had to push it hard to get the things back in place. Now it makes a terrible noise when I am focusing... But it is working. I can't imagine the feeling of experiencing something like that with a 5d.

It hurts alot seeing those pictures.

Those photo's hurt my eyes.

I dropped my 7D with 300mm attached last year.. Something with a backpack not being zippered up. Wife said i actually turned canon-white for a minute.

There was no damage though. Just some mudsmears.

Dammmm, that's the camera body equivalent of a Lamborghini accident. I think I'd pretty much cry if that happened to me.

Unfortunately home owners insurance doesn't have comprehensive coverage like autos (where you have a separate deductible). So I'd be inclined to think most carry higher deductibles these days to try and keep the cost down. You could add a rider to the policy for additional coverage but there again your dealing with the deductible.

No, you get a personal articles policy that is independent of your homeowners policy just to cover the camera gear from theft, accidental damage, and loss. Mine is pretty cheap, something like $10 per $1000 insured per year through State Farm. I strongly suggest everyone with DSLRs look into getting something like that on their gear, you have a lot more peace of mind.

Just started a personal articles policy through State Farm for my camera gear. About $70/yr for $7k worth of coverage. No deductible, covers theft, loss, accidental damage. Worth every penny. After seeing these pics, glad I did it!

Umm ... well color me purple as I never was aware such a policy existed and especially with no deductible. Thanks for correcting me.

Today I placed my camera on a table while i went in another room to retrieve something and my son ( who is 8 and should know better) tried to get something off the table and pushed my camera off, breaking the corner, cracking the lcd and the body near the lens mount (see photos).


C'mon dad, it's not the kids fault you left it in a vulnerable place! ;)

Kitchen table perhaps ?

That's why I asked if a lens was attached. That looks to be a little extreme for the 5D2 even with a light lens on it. I noticed the OP has the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II and if that was attached it would certainly explain the damage.

Yes, I had my 70-200 2.8 behemoth attached. Luckily, there is no damage that I can see to the lens.

I remember my then 3yr old son doing the same thing to my new Olympus OM 2 close to 30 years ago. Fortunately I had the presence of mind to take a deep breath, give him a reassuring hug and got the camera repaired. In the greater scheme of things there are so many worse things that can happen.
Your CC will almost certainly cover the repairs.
Maybe you & your boy will look back someday and remember this incident as a real learning experience for both!
Good luck!

Yeah, I sort of did the same thing. I am always so careful to place my camera in my bag when not using it but I literally just laid it there for 30 seconds while I retrieved something from another room. I guess it only takes once! I know people are important and things aren't as my mother has always said.

We also have some of my wife's jewelry under the same personal articles rider, so if a stone falls out or she looses an earring or something we have coverage. Your homeowner's won't extend beyond your home either, so if you are out with your camera and it gets dropped or stolen you would be completely out of luck. It is very inexpensive and well worth having it, in fact I need to get my new 17-55 added to it.

I was just looking into a personal articles policy last week. Another good thing about it is , since it's a separate policy, if you need to use the insurance, it won't affect your homeowners rates. It is designed for collectibles, hobbies, etc...

I feel your pain...
Around Christmas time I was coming back from a company Christmas party and my 5D2 and my 3 lenses with me as I was taking photos at the party. Well I had a few drinks that night and that was a curse.

I make it home and grab my bag from the car and swung it around my back(its a Canon backpack) and little did I know that the zipper to the bag was completely open. Everything hit the ground. My 17-40L was on the camera and took the beating. The lens mount snapped and the lens release button on the camera flew off. Other than that release button the camera is fine...but I lost 3 lenses in the process. 17-40L(cant use at all), 70-200 f/4L(no longer focuses) and my nifty fifty(pretty much dead in the water). :( I am still saving money to get it all repaired.

I see your issue, you're prying it open with a screw driver.
