All of your shots here are outstanding. There are too many nice ones to comment individually on each one.

Thank you :-)

I started taking photos in 2011 after my wife and I retired. I've had a lot of gear since then. A couple of weeks ago, I had my first accident. I was at my son's house and grabbed the camera to take a photo of one of my grandkids. What I didn't know was that the lens was not fully locked to the body. I swung the camera up to my face and went to grab the foot of the 100-400 II. Unfortunately the lens rotated, separated from the camera body, and fell onto a tile floor. The 1.4x III extender was attached, and it hit first. The lens hood hit next, and the lens bounced a couple of times before coming to a rest. The white housing of the 1.4x III had a significant dent where it hit. The lens seemed to work, but it no longer focused properly.

Here's a photo taken with the damaged lens:

I have a rider on my home insurance policy to cover my camera gear. I asked them what to do, and I sent the lens and extender to Canon for a repair estimate. It was $80 for the extender and about $400 for the lens. My insurance company authorized the repair and sent me a check to cover the cost. I told Canon to proceed with the repair, and I paid them directly. The lens and the extender were returned yesterday. Canon reported that the extender did not have any optical damage, so all they needed to do was replace the barrel. The lens needed a bit more work. Element 6 and the USM unit were both damaged and replaced. The lens was cleaned and calibrated. It now seems just as good as ever.

The repaired lens:

And the lens with the extender:

I normally carry my camera on a BlackRapid strap and I have safety straps going to both the lens and the body. Once or twice I have had the lens separate from the body. The straps did their job, and the separation was a non-event. Just goes to show I should be more careful when I grab a camera for a quick shot!

Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.

How long did it take for the repair to get done?

I sent the items on a Monday and had the estimates from Canon on Tuesday. Once I got all the paperwork finalized with the insurance company, I authorized the repair with Canon on Wednesday a week later. The items were fixed and shipped on Thursday and at my door on Friday.

Wow that's pretty quick!

I read somewhere else about "several weeks" with Canon stuff.

I've been a CPS Platinum member for the past three years, and I've had excellent service on camera bodies that I've sent in for routine cleaning and maintenance. Before that, I had a few items I sent in under warranty. The service was excellent on those as well. In general, I've heard good things about Canon service. But there's always some exceptions.

As you may know, the planet Mercury is currently passing in front of the sun. It's the last transit we'll see in North America until 2032 (the last one was 2016). It's pretty hazy in the Pacific Northwest today. The photo below is the best I could do. Mercury is the small dot in the center of the sun.
