My 6 months old 5D Mark II took a bad tumble off a bench in rough seas and dropped app. 1 1/2 feet to a hard wooden floor, and after that it started overexposing everything, as if there's not enough light reaching the sensor or something.
The 70-200 2.8 II lens that was on the camera was not hurt at all (which just proves how incredibly sturdy that wonder of a lens is, I guess) and the camera body also looks completely unhurt. No other functions seem to be affected by the accident, and all menu options are available. And the issue persists no matter what lens I test the camera with.
I tried updating the firmware (I hadn't installed the latest version for some reason) after the incident, just to check if it might just be a shake-up somewhere in the system. But that didnt work.
Obviously the camera needs service - but I am just wondering if anyone might have an idea what could've happened? Just seems strange to me that ONLY the light metering is off.
