I wanted to dig into my 1D2 but after taking part of the top off I grew very wary of it making it's way back together haha. I do have an old 28-80 (non L) I've taken apart to make a tilt-shift.

Yep, reassembly is another story. You have to document and draw pictures.

You have to hand it to Canon...the intricate engineering process is admirable.

A tiltshift?! Enlighten us all :)


1Ds (Killed by bird crap), 5d2 (never to be taken apart!), 300d IR (fianlly put it back together), 35L, 40mm pancake, 85mm 1.8, Tamwrong 28-75 2.8 (really good lens!) and a load of spare parts!

Very cool! Now put everything in a box and send it to Canon asking how much it'll cost to repair!

I did a partial disassembly of a 5D a couple years back:

I also disassembled and re-assembled a Canon EF 35-80mm lens, but I don't have pictures of it.

some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", and an M5, also an M6 that has had a 720nm filter bolted onto the sensor:

Awesome work, Joeseph ! I would never dare disassemble completely a 1-D series body, I'm sure i wouldn't be able to reassemble it afterwards.
