| p.1 #1 · Dropped 5D3 from 1meter: Should I be worried? |
So I dropped the 5D3, no lens attached from my waist height and it landed and bounced on a wood floor, luckily (I think) landing on the hotshoe.
Everything looked okay but then I mounted a lens and it would not drive the AF or IS. Took a picture, the mirror worked but gave Error: Can't communicate with lens. Only able to take videos. Then about 5 mins later it started to take and record pictures but still no AF or IS. Then I went to the office to find a small screwdriver to try and tighten the mount down although it looked fine. Got to the office and tried quickly once more. All of a sudden, AF works, IS works, no more errors and all AF modes seem to work.
My question is: Should I be worried? and anyone know what might have happened to have it stop communicating and then miraculously start working again 20mins later?
I had planned to take this on my trip to Borneo tomorrow but mainly as a backup to the 1DX as my Fuji XE-2 will be my second shooter for most stuff. I don't really want to bring 7D, 5D2 or 1D4 as I have my biases against them but maybe that would be a safe choice. I will go out today and test the 5D3 as much as possible.
