Tragedy has struck tonight. While shooting with my 5D MkII (which I've had for just over a month), the shutter button failed. I felt it go.
AF still occurs when the button is partially depressed, but the shutter does not release when the button is fully depressed. Although I'm certain it's a hardware failure, I removed batteries, re-seated the lens, changed settings etc., but to no avail.
Has anyone had a similar failure? Any idea how long it will take to fix it? We have some family functions coming up in the next couple of weeks and I hope the 5D is fixed and returned by then, but I'm not sure that will happen.
Not a good end to what was already a bad day.
