Well... after having missed my 1-year-warranty by a whole two weeks, my Rebel decides to stop autofocusing and to stop metering correctly. For my entire vacation (and Nude entry in fact) I dealt with it, but then decided that I needed to send it in for repair. So today we get the estimate back from Canon --- $200. Yipes, that sucks... so much for my 70-200 f/4 I've been looking at.

This is one of those depressing, getting of some steam type threads so yea here it is.

Tranquil,

That really bites.... I recently had my flash hotshoe get ripped off of my camera in a drop accident. I took it to a repair shop and they quoted me at 170$ CAD to get it fixed..... so I took it home and glued the hotshoe back on with some epoxy resin.... good as new now. I'm so glad I was able to fix it myself. I only wish there was some sort of similar solution for you!

Hope it doesn't take long for them to fix it!

bummer Tranquil. I can feel your pain as everytime I think I have enough saved up for a decent lens, a disaster strikes and I have to spend my savings on fixing whatever.
Hopefully you'll get the camera back fast and won't have any mmore trouble with it.

Not to jump the Nikon Ship or anything, but be glad this wasn't a Nikon. Just about any repair of this type would have cost you over $300 for a Nikon... :)
