The 1D's are tough - drop a little gaffers tape on on it and call it a day. (assuming it still works).

Sorry bud, dropped my Pentax k10d with the flash, cracked almost exactly the same, still works just fine. I did buy a 5d to replace it, which is why I landed up here. But I can really feel your pain

I feel your pain. I just left my 70-200/2.8 IS at FedEx a couple hours ago for it's trip to the New Jersey service center. It focuses fine but the zoom ring does nothing.

I'm going to miss it while it's away, I just hope it's not an arm and a leg to correct whatever is wrong.

Same here. Dropped my 24-105 while switching lenses shooting a wedding. Yeah, that sucked. Knocked the focusing out on that lens and that was my go to lens. I'm a lot more careful now a days. hope that camera still works.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

That's because their cases are ABS plastic, not magnesium.

There's a reason why motorcycle helmets are often made from ABS but never from magnesium. ;)

EDIT: oops. I didn't mean to say ABS (motorcycle fairings are ABS) but rather polycarbonate.

That's not good. I would be worried if there is an electrical (or circuitry) problem inside of the camera and would definitely get it fixed unless its cost prohibitive.

I'm sorry for your misfortune -- that really stinks!
