Thread slept 8 months, but I suppose no one here has done it until now?
My 5D lost its mirror two weeks ago, at the moment it is only taped inside the camera :-)
Some seconds after I saw the mirror has fallen out of its frame, I thought about a ~100% reflective mirror. And about mirror shaving.
Today I found this thread, and read wheter others are thinking its a bad idea - seems not.
Last weekend I salvaged two old SLR cameras, on mirror broke - but that one was too thick.
The other one seems to be good, need to clean the glue from the backside. And I need to do that very carefully, without breaking it, probably I should use a bigger UV filter as a base plate for that work.
Thought about changing the focussing screen as well, to get a split screen EE-S alternative, but those I got are to small, relative to the normal 5D screen. But probably not the whole size is needed, have to analyse the metal frame.
