Mmm. I dropped my 7D onto a concrete floor today at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair I was doing portraits at. It bounced and was dead for a minute until it restarted – kudos to the 7D.
The 16-35 2.8L lens is dented. It all seems all right – but with a seriously banged about camera and a living that depends on it, this is basically $4,000 I can no longer trust. More than I make all month this month- this is definitely NOT my day. Yes, I can drive it all to Canon for a two-week CPS checkup. Problem is, first free day is in December. And I need the lens until that time, constantly.
Goes to show why we al have redundant equipment. Never rely on one piece of gear!
