I didn't get any because my original order was on October 12th, before they started offering the free cards. my replacement was "ordered" on the 15th.

that battery takes a while to charge.

I have a Delkin dual charger, where you can charge two batteries at once and change the plates depending on what battery you are charging. I bought the 5D II plates, and swapped them out with my 50D plates..which I have no need for anymore..

anyway, I ordered a generic battery from Amazon, and already had it fully charged when my replacement 5D II came in.

I ordered the 5D mkii on Saturday and received it this morning. The camera itself looks brand new. I am waiting for the battery to charge up, so I can check the sensor and shutter count.

For those of you who didn't get the two 1 gig memory cards (SimpleTech brand from Costco is how my invoice reads), I would check the bottom of the huge shipping box. That's where mine were just loose in the big box and not in the 5D box.

Sensor looks spotless. Camera has 195 clicks on it. Firmware is 2.0.7. I am happy so far =).

Wow! I didn't even know about this!

I have a SX120 that broke a month ago. A 50 1.4 that skips when focusing, and another lens with a broken zoom. I will have to get #'s and give them a call!

How can you clean the LCD screen? There is a white spot of dust in the LCD that bothers me. The only thing wrong with mine. I had dust on the sensor but I cleaned it

I know the "LCD" glass is replaceable. maybe the LCD was damaged on your copy and they replaced it and accidentally left a spec of dust.

if you check out the EOS camera forum, there's a sticky on replacing a damaged 5D LCD, which may show you how to remove your top layer.

They don't want your busted lens.

I might just have to get over it for the discount I got on a MKII with only 18 shutter count.

I just saw a post that said Canon product. I guess it is just for Digital cameras? or will they take film cameras also?

I know I have another digital P&S that broke, looks like I will be digging in some boxes in storage tonight.

If you look in the guy's signature above, he has a Canon Loyalty Program FAQ. here's the link if you have further questions: https://photography-on-the.net …hp?p=11146545&p​ostcount=1

Some people have been able to give them film cameras, some other people haven't been able to, it usually just depends on the representative you get. If you have the serial number, they will generally take it.
