You have a year warranty on the camera. Contact Canon and arrange to ship it to the nearest facility. They will ask for a copy of the sales receipt.
Don't wait, get it fixed.

I would say it depends on what type of shooting you're interested in which is the most important factor in choosing a body. For me i have a passion for sports so upgraded my original body from an xsi kit (when first getting into photography years ago) to the 7D. Just recently i traded in for a 1D Mark IV which happens to be a HUGE upgrade from the 1D III. I can tell you that i know A LOT of people who recently got the 5D III when the IV was released since it dropped in price a substantial amount. Its full frame & you cannot beat that sensor or image quality as well as high ISO capabilities. My new 1D IV has 10 fps & great high ISO which is extremely important when shooting sports with fast SS but i've heard the 5D III is RIDICULOUS! I'm mentioning all of this as an example because the 5D wouldnt do anything for me since my passion is for sports. What im gaining i would lose with reach since full sensor & i cannot afford 300mm+ lenses to make up for this which is what the pros do as well as fps. Sure i could crop & with the 5D u can a great deal not losing any quality. So it all depends on what type of photography you're gonna shoot!He is asking about 1DS MK III, not 1D MK III.
How did you price a P&S lens? Its not interchangable, and, when the camera dies, so does the lens. Prices for P&S lenses are not the same as for interchangable lenses.
The lens alone is worth more than 1000$, so 1800$ is not too bad for a FF body.
Plus, you pay the premium for a momentarily unique product.
The AE-1 was my first serious camera, I bought it new in 1978, my mum signed the finance agreement for it, I still have the camera, and the finance agreement! It was £220 which equates to about £1,250, or around $2,000 in today's money, I paid for it with a paper round, actually two paper rounds! Now bearing that in mind can those vocal few stop moaning about the price of the 6D?I have two or three of the AE-1 program models, they don't get the chirp-squeek like the AE-1's have. I can often find them with a 50mm f/1.8 FD lens for $5 at garage sales. I have spare batteries, flash units, and I clean them up and test them to make great cameras for photography students. They are cheap, and good learning cameras. Our local junior college has a very strong photography program. I also have a bunch of Minolta SRT101's, but they tend to have reliability issues, particulary susceptable to lens issues.
Unfortunately I don't have my mum anymore, but I will never sell that camera.
