So, as you say....
Score one for the fish.
Question: Do you eat fish?
Score a couple for the fish:
my brand new (to me) lens
I would eat more fish if I could outsmart them. Maybe I"ll just go buy a big piece of swordfish and grill it up, to get even. ;-)
I would send it to Canon, they can disassemble it and make certain its dry and OK. That would cost less than turning it on and frying a motherboard. The lens needs service as well.
Of course, if its insured against things like that, just dry it out and try it.
I took both into the lab, put them in a ziplock bag full of drierite dessicant, figured that would do better than rice. But yeah, you're probably right, I'll probably end up sending both to Canon next week... of course this happened on a Saturday.
I saw that... makes me feel good about impact resistance. But water's so much sneakier about the way it gets in places and never comes out....
Thanks all for your comments- I do feel a bit better than I did this morning!
