No big mystery. It broke.  It happens. That is why we have backup gear for such an emergency. When I was working full time I generally had four cameras with me. Now I only take two but they are both 1 series. and, not only bodies but backup lenses too.

I agree it's no big mystery.  I guess I am a bit in shock - in almost 37 years of using Canon camera gear this is the first time I have had to send in hardware for service.  I am glad I got A shot of my partner's award and I got some good shots of the Vice Chancellor and other recipients too, so the night was not lost.

I guess one COULD say that in fact this is a testament to reliability of the gear.  Certainly, from my years in computers, I know that electronic components often fail in the early parts of their life.  I am glad it did so so early in its cycle, so at least it is a warranty issue.
