Hello all,

I did a quick search and didn't see that anyone had posted this information.

I called Canon yesterday regarding sending my 1DmarkII in for repair (shutter failure at only about 35,000 actuations).

I was told as of February 2012, Canon is no longer servicing the 1DmarkII. Apparently, they still will service the 1DmarkIIn, and of course the 1DsmarkII.

Aside from KEH, who I already called, does anyone have any suggestions where I could send for repair? Let me know.

Thanks,

Mike

I called New Jersey and also Irvine, CA and both checked and read the exact same text to me "As of February 2012...."

Maybe there's an exception if you're a CPS member.

No more service. There was a thread couple of weeks ago. Someone mentioned one/two places where you can get it fixed if needed.

The thread is here: https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1166411

You can have it repair where they have spare part in stock. Maybe Canon can guide you as they know where is the stock.

Not really surprising, honestly. The 1D2 is pretty old tech, these days. Since the original 1D was phased out of repair several years ago, it was strongly assumed that this was coming.

Any competent repair shop should be able to handle the job, and parts are still available on eBay, but as part supplies dry up, the job will steadily become more and more expensive.

What a shame. Even though the 1DM2 is old technology, it's still a formidable dslr.

No doubt, but Canon is in business to make money. Manufacturing spares for an aging camera probably costs more than it's worth, and hey, if we can't fix it anymore, you can always upgrade, right?

Any Canon DSLR, from the D30 to the 5D3 is a formidable camera, but like every other technology, things are phased out and replaced.

I don't think this should discourage anyone from buying a 1D2, honestly, because they're generally pretty solid cameras. If anything, it might lower prices a bit and put them into the hands of people that would be very happy to have them.
