It was unfortunate for me today to have dropped my came from about 4 feet straight down to some metal bars sitting on hardwood flooring. Now the camera is giving me Err 99 battery error.
So my questions:
1) any idea what this means? I already remove lens, card, battery (including the small clock battery) & nothing seems to help. What could be possibly wrong? And cost to fix ?
2) my 4 months old EF 35L suffered a ding on the side, about 1/2 inch from the lens edge behind the UV filter. When I tried plugging it into another body, pictures are no longer sharp especially below f/4.0. At f/1.4, it used to be really sharp, but now it's blurry. I am thinking to bring it back to Canon in Irvine but for this kind of problems, can it be fixed 100%? I really like the sharpness at f/1.4 & if after I fixed it, I'm really afraid it will not be the same anymore. Any inputs?
3) since my lens is still under warranty & I dropped it, would warranty cover the fix?
I appreciate your inputs. Any past experiences & knowledge sharings are welcome. It just sucks that I'm at Vegas for vacation & I am worried about my gears at the same time.
