if it turns on than its not a very big damage afterall..Still could be significant value left in it if the mirror box is not damaged,

I guess $100 for the body and another $100 for the lens wont be a bad deal

From what I can see (just looking on my iphone) it looks like the lens was damaged the most. I would remove the remnants of the damaged lens and try the camera with another lens. The damage to the camera may be just cosmetic.

Looks like the body split. The screen is coming off, I wonder about internal damage. I'd be interested in seeing it with the lens off.

yeah, and it was mounted on a tripod?
weird, I don't believe that!
It looks more like it was thrown out a building!

I dropped a lens once, and it was not damaged too much.
A body is usually strong!

weird, very weird!

Oh hell, if I had a 5DMKII and 24-70L there's no way I'd let it end up like that (and it would be insured too).

So you never had an accident, never dinged your car, never spilled wine on your rug, never dinged your wall as you brought your new table into the dining room?

Knocked it over??? That looks more like it got ran over by a truck. As for value... I really dont know how to answer that. I cant see that being worth anything. There really isn't anything there worth anything really. I would offer him 25 dollars if you really want it for some reason.

has you friend expressed any interest in sending it to canon to see what the damage is monetarily?

for some reason I feel like the lens wouldn't be that much...the body though looks like a train wreck

I saw a Sony A850 and a lens flip off a tripod once.
The lens sufferred more than the body, both were repairable but it was a significant percentage of the 2nd hand value.

I'd guess the 5D2 was stronger, no evidence just a gut feel. That looked like it had fallen 15 meters onto rough concrete.
Personally I wouldn't want it - say they mend it - the kinetic energy that camera must have absorbed looks like it would have been a lot.
Say Canon mend it, there is still a chance some component will fail later.

So, here's the prologue to the story. I offered him $200 for the whole smash (pun intended). He thought I meant $200 for just the body and accepted. After we cleared that misunderstanding up he asked to think about it for a few days.

I just heard back from him. He had to go to LA and decided to stop by Canon in Irvine (he had not contacted them before). They told him "Of course we can fix it!" so he left it there. Oh well.

I bet they charge $500 for the lens...and scrap the body...

I've asked him to let me know. If he does I'll post the info. I'm very curious too!

I'd guess the 5D2 was stronger, no evidence just a gut feel.

I guess we all tend to think so, due to the magnesium construction - but you know that I've seen multiple threads on 5Dx bodies being broken like this, but none that I can recall of polycarbonate Rebels showing this type of damage.

There seems to be common belief like I found posted on Yahoo Answers: "The advantage of Magnesium Alloy is that it will never crack when dropped." I'm not sure whether magnesium or polycarbonate is "tougher", or better when used to support heavy lenses - but I'm really starting to think that much of the supposed superiority of magnesium bodies is just a myth.
