p.1 #1 · New 5D mark II stuck shutter?


Hi all, I just got a new 5D mark II a week ago. Been playing around with it for a few days.
About 50 shots in the shutter got stuck with the mirror up (viewfinder was black). I had to reset the camera for it to return to normal. I'm now at about 250 shots and it hasn't happen again. Should i be worried about this brand new camera? or is that "break-in period" and there is nothing to worry about?

Personally I would exchange it if the store policies allowed me to.

hmmm just found out that my little cousin dropped my 50 1.8 before I mount it on the new 5D II right before it. I wonder if that could cost it... The lens still works...

Silly question but are you sure you didn't inadvertently enable the mirror lockup mode, which would have been cleared by a full camera reset?

no it wasn't the mirror lockup mode. Hmmm I'm at a bit over 500 clicks and everything seems to be fine. I really don't want to return for an exchange since i'd be without a camera for over a week if I do that. I'm hoping it was the 50 1.8 lens that my cousin dropped. I've been using other lenses and it's been working fine.

Some times my old XTi would lock up if I tried to do too many adjustment/settings too quickly or at once. Switching off for a few seconds always corrected the lockup and in normal operation, move one setting at a time, the camera has never missed a beat.
