Owch !

About a minute after explaining to a parent on the sidelines of a football pitch how I damaged my 70-200 f/2.8L lens by dropping it on the floor at the Amex, my 7D camera swung into the back of my 1D MkIII camera, colliding with the top right hand corner of the screen.  What a clumsy twerp I am.

That’s two bits of kit that need to be taken around the M25 to the Canon repair facility in Elstree. Humph.

Memo to self: be more careful Geoff – else you’ll have nothing left!

UPDATE: Canon’s estimate for the repair of both camera and lens is £640.03.  Owch indeed!

SECOND UPDATE: The final estimate rose to £730.00.  I think I need a drink!
