I purchased a 5D classic from a POTN member and it arrived today. After the first couple of shots, the viewfinder went dark. When I took the lens off of the camera the mirror almost fell out of the camera.
1) Does Canon still fix the mirror assembly for free, even if it's not the original owner?
2) It is appropriate for me to get my money back from the seller, right? We used regular Paypal, not a gift.
This will be my last time purchasing a used item. Two months ago I bought a 100-400mm from a guy on Craigslist that had a broken image stabilizer. I didn't notice it until the next day and I tried to shoot video. I just got it back from Canon. $350 later and nothing from the seller. I'm not a happy camper.
Thanks for letting me vent.
