Mine came off a few months back. It came off, I found it laying on the carpet and snapped it back into place. It was out of warranty and I sent it to the Canon Center in Jamesburg, NJ for estimate. With my CPS discount the cost was $263. I never got it done. It seems sturdy and I never have had any issues with it again.
I believe the rubber sealing requires the back plate to be taken off in order to access it.
Hope this helps.
This was my original posting:
I feel you pain. I'm vacationing in the northern regions of the Fijian islands with spectactularly clear nights. My subject of choice the Milky Way is so clear and bright you can reach out and touch it.
Day 1- computer died (hard drive failure)
Pretty disappointed but that can be fixed when I return to the statees.
Day 4 - My 5D III gets knocked over. Good news is my 24-70 is unharmed. Bad news is the camera is toast.
My Fijian friends and family (Matevuvale) have a saying... Senga na lenga - translation is no worries
It's quite common. You can probably just push the joystick back into place and it will work.
The only problem is the rubber bladder/seal is now broken. If you send it to Canon they will replace it; the catch is that the joystick's rubber is attached to the whole rubber bladder surrounding the body, which they will have to replace.
If you don't need the complete weather seal I'd just push the little thing back on and be done with it. I doubt even in rain if it will affect it. After all, the 5D2 never had a rubberized joystick.
I recently traded in my 7D for a mint 1D Mk1v and have not regretted for one moment. Noise control is probably as much as 2.5 stops better than the 7D. It is quicker has better IQ and handles brilliantly. Don't miss the 1.6 crop on the 7D, the APH sensor just rocks.
I also have the 5D MK111 and whilst the 1V cannot quite match the image quality it still delivers amazing images.
The 1v is used for wildlife whereas the 5d is used for landscape, perfect.
For landscape, why not 6D?
I have read lots and lots of threads here with people having AF problems with the 50A, but so far all of them had these issues with their 1D series camera, most notably the 1Dx.
Can someone confirm that these issues also affect other cameras as well?
IsaacImage also mentioned having difficulties on the 5DIII, which has a similar AF system. Being able to nail thin DOF shots with outer focus points is such a advantage that I don't think I'm willing to go back to using centerpoint only (i.e. 5DII) even if the lens is superior.

A bit of positive news from my side, for once! The replacement 50 Art seems okay. I'm not ready to give it the all clear, but three days and 1500 images and I haven't really had a missed shot that wasn't to be expected or my fault. It tracks nice, no crazy misses and sharpness is there for all the shots.
Can't wait to hear from Eldar and what his 50 Art replacement is like.
I'm leaving on a trip tomorrow morning.... do you think the 7D2 will be ready in time?
We’re told to finally expect some significant camera announcements from Canon in May. There will be a couple of PowerShot’s announced, most notably the SX60 IS and its 100x zoom, as well as a DSLR. The assumption on the DSLR is that it will be the follow-up to the EOS 7D.</p>
So, today or tomorrow, right?
Looks like Sigma will have to deal with AF reports first and check this before release of the 85mm f/1.4 Art. This is not good advertisement for Sigma and their products.
My 50mm f/1.4 Art does not have AF problems. I am extremely happy with my copy.
Did you order yours on Day 1?
I pre-ordered mine about half a month ago and B&H sent me an email a few days ago basically saying "We don't have anything to ship to you but we haven't forgotten that we've charged you.."
