    Probably fixable, send it to canon and see what they say. Even if it ends up costing you a grand to fix it is still worth having it done - either that or you can shell out 3 grand for a MKIII.

    back to Canon I think; btw if it has been an issue with this model Canon may fix it FOC or at least at a reduced rate as happened to me recently with a camera well out of warranty.

    Generally if its terminal you'll know about it. I suspect that theres a processing error (does the same thing happen, in the same place on ever image by the way??) and the camera will just need a new imaage processing board or something - probably a few hundred quid. The very worst would be a new sensor at around a grand but if it were that then I would be surprised.

    Sadly (for you) there has been no history of this sort of thing on the MKIIN's, I have used a pair of them since they were launched and so have most of the togs I know, and none of us know of any such issues.

    They'll fix it but they'll take AGES!! Expect to be without it for a month or more.
    If you have problems once the RPP expires then send it direct to canon - last time I had a camera serviced I sent it in on tuesday, had it back friday morning.

    Looks like a broken shutter.

    Here's a couple of examples.

    Example 1

    Example 2

    Interesting to see Canon fixed the camera free of charge on the second example even although it was out of warranty. I wonder if he mentioned to them it wasn't that rare a problem according to the Internet?!

    They replace the unit, i think it's around 600 if you have to pay.
