I'm sorry for your bad experience. My suggestion is to write a letter to Canon, calmly and clearly explaining your situation before selling off your great gears. Many years ago I had to send my Canon G3 for repair and it was a couple of weeks after the warranty has expired. I included a letter with the camera explaining that I had not used the camera for a few months and the LCD had died while it was still under warranty, but I did not find out until after the warranty has expired. All of this was absolutely true and I was hoping they would believe me and honor the warranty, although I understood and would have accepted their denial. Happily, they fixed it for free under warranty and the G3 still works to this day. I've bought quite a few Canon DSLRs and lenses since then and very satisfied with Canon over the years.
