You can always get a glass cover off ebay and do it yourself. I replaced the back LCD of my 60D for about $20.

Here is the 5D3 part from the same store where I bought it from:

But that might be risky. Not sure how much Canon would charge for the part and labor.

Ouch! Man best bet is to send it in to canon and get a repair estimate, then proceed from there.

Agreed. I didn't noticed that the LCD itself was damaged - not just the glass cover. OP, you have my sympathies.

How did it happen?

As I see it is not only the glass cover, but the lcd panel itself... :(
Have no idea I would guess around $150.

stupid me, doing a shoot, left one light stand up and it fell on my camera on the floor. Never leave a light stand blanking and never leave your camera on the floor

If it can be done for $150 I'd be surprised. Various places list the LCD panel at $100. With labor I'd figure closer to $250 to $275.

Check your LCD function, if everything in the display works, repair the glass yourself. Here's how simple it is. (click the link)

from the parts catalog, the LCD isn't a separate part so you need a complete top panel assembly.
lots of hits online, for example see: http://www.amazon.co.u​k …G2-3197-010/dp/B00AA7R6NM (external link)

The Canon out of warranty minimum labor charge is $209. you should start from there. Good luck with the repair.
