Hi folks

My 5D is suffering from a detached mirror.

Having read a few reports, including one on the official Canon site, I see that there is a known production issue effecting the adhesive used on some cameras and that Canon will fix this free of charge. Does anyone have personal experience of the following authorised Canon repair centres? Colchester Camera Repair Services, H. Lehmann Limited or Canon (UK) RCC?

Mine had the same problem recently. I emailed Lehmann to confirm the free repair and had it turned around within 3 days. Cant fault them.

I've used Colchester Camera Repair Services in the past and would not hesitate to use them again.

Looks like all are good. I use RCC whenever I have a problem and have no complaints at all
