Re: three f/2.8 sensitive AF points failed in my 5D mark ii

" I know. It is already burned."

 

You can call Canon but I am pretty sure they won't repair a 5D2.  You can try big repair shops like Midwest Camera Repair.  If they have or can get parts, they will repair it.

update:

 

Got email from Canon repair team. The AF sensor was melted, and the repair would cost $384.

What's the going rate for a used 5D2? $384 for one that's been checked out by Canon may not be that bad a deal.

"$384 for one that's been checked out by Canon may not be that bad a deal."

 

I agree but $384 might also be a good down payment on a better 5D Mk III, or perhaps a Mk IV.

For the type of work the OP cited (capturing a transit of Mercury), it isn't clear that the additional features of those more advanced cameras would contribute very much.

I agree in specs but they offer younger gear. In the case of a Mk IV perhaps even new gear.

EOS Ra makes much more sense, if you want to go new. But I agree with Bob.
