Wife opened the back of my truck and camera bag fell out with my 5D4 and 70-200 attached and inside. The camera mounting ring is bent out slightly and none of my lenses will lock into place without force. You can see the broken guide on the 70-200. They are insured with no deductible but not sure of the cost if I were to send them in. I’m not a CPS member. Any ideas? Here’s the aftermath...

Bummer, sorry to see. Unless your going to get a hammer out and beat it straight, you know what you have to do.

Dang.

I often go back and forth about whether it is best to keep a lens on or not. I almost always do, and might consider doing it different sometimes. It will also probably make me carry my Pelican Case more often.

One time I was out walking around a field with my kid, he was bored. I was setting the camera up on the tripod and turned around just in time to see him getting ready to sit on my soft case that had pretty much all but one of my lenses in it. He was 8 at the time, and is not a small kid. I yelled. Loudly. Thankfully he stood back up just in time.

Good luck with the repairs and insurance.

I rarely EVER leave my lens attached. I did this time because I was out of town and carrying my soft bad instead of my pelican case and had to because I needed the room. I almost cried.

Insurance company is checking with Canon to see what repair costs are. I have to send everything in tomorrow for repair quotes before insurance makes a decision whether to repair or replace. Lord knows how long all this will take. I’m just thankful I have insurance as they are covering shipping and all other charges.

Wow, so sorry to hear of your bad luck. I normally leave my lens attached.. I may have to revisit this thought, though. However, it is usually its a small prime. Anyhow, I hope all works out for you in the end! Let us know what happens!

It looks like all you need are new mounts. . Am I missing something?

New mounts are not a big deal at all. . In fact, I think the last time I replaced a mount it was only like fifty bucks, and the time before that Canon did it for free when I sent a body and a lens in for a free check & clean (via CPS).

The lens mount can be replaced in about 5 minutes with one of those tiny screwdriver kits that you can get at the dollar store. . And it helps to use some LocTite (the non-permanent kind, of course) or some silicone on the threads so that the screws don't keep working loose.

I'm just not seeing how this is a big deal. . These mounts can be replaced easily, even if you have no experience and no skill. . It's just 4 screws that you take out and then put back in. . Nothing more to it than that.

.

It's not so much the lens that I am most worried about, it is the metal ring on the camera body. The top is bent out and does not "pop" back into place. No lens will mount and lock into place because of this. If it was a hard enough drop to break the lens mount and bend the mounting ring on the body I am afraid it may have jarred something else loose. Would you just replace the metal ring on the lens and try to pop the ring on the body back into place and just hope everything is ok?

I did just sign up for the CPS Silver membership and am now wondering if the $100 upgrade to gold is worth it. I see some slight benefits but this one caught my eye....

yes this mean they clean 5 pieces for free?

Yeah, I believe so. . They used to call it "check and clean" service, but I think I recall hearing that they changed the name for some unknown reason.

In any event, I don't think you need anything like that for your issue. . Just ordering a pair of mounts and getting the one dollar eyeglass screwdriver kit and a little tube of silicone is all you need ..... well, that and 10 minutes.

It's nothing to get "sick to your stomach" over, or to be calling insurance companies about. . Its just busted mounts.

We'll just agree to disagree over this one.

The mounts are designed to break first in a fall like that to save both the camera and lens. Although your's are 'only' bent, they can completely break out of the lens which looks horrendous but is no worse than what you have.

What part of what I said do you disagree with?

Do you really believe that a 10 minute repair, costing less than $100 in parts, is something to make an insurance claim about? . Why sully your insurance track record and risk increased premiums over something so minor?

Or is it that do you not believe me about it costing so little? . Or is it that you don't believe me about it taking only 10 minutes to replace both mounts?

I'm not really clear what it is that you disagree with me about.

Perhaps it seems like a big deal to you if you are not familiar with performing such repairs on your own. . Things often seem more complex when one is unfamiliar with them. . But, whether you are familiar with this kind of thing or not, does not change the facts - it is a very inexpensive, very easy, and very quickly done repair.

Just because something seems like a big deal, or feels like a big deal, doesn't mean that it is. . Feelings are often misguiding and we have to disregard them because of this.

Calm down. It made me sick to my stomach. Whether or not it does you is your decision. Any time I drop thousands of dollars on gear and then drop the actual gear I get a little nauseous. I will know more tomorrow after I talk to Canon.

Again, I’m ok with replacing the part on the lens. I’m not ok with attempting to remove a part from the $3,xxx camera I just bought. It doesn’t just pop into place and I don’t want to risk causing anymore damage.
