I just bought a second hand mkII and have found the vertical grip shutter release dose not work. I can activate the auto focus. But when I do a full press, nothing happens. I am hoping that this is a hidden setting issue and not a broken button.

If it is a broken button, how much do you think to fix?

Any help would be appreciated.

If the regular shutter button works fine, and the vertical grip is turned on (it will be if you can AF), then you definitely have a mechanical/electrical issue.

Did you test the camera before you bought it, or was it an online purchase?

Thanks for your reply.

I tested as much as I could in person before I bought it, but overlooked the vertical shutter release. Looks like I might have to send it in. Any guess on cost?

I have no idea how much something like that would cost -- it would be best to call canon and see if they can give you a a ballpark figure.

Let us know how much it costs in the end.
