Yup, the title says it all. Last Saturday my g/f and I went on a day trip and when we got up to catch the ferry my camera fell out of it's bag and faceplanted on the concrete floor. The $15 UV filter took the brunt of the impact and cracked, saving the $400 lens underneath. The camera powered on and auto-focused, so I thought it was fine until i tried to take a picture and the shutter wouldn't fire. Ok, so now what. The camera is a Konica-Minolta 5D, which is no longer in production. Sony took over the product line as their alpha series and they are offering repair for them. According to their website, they will repair it for a flat rate of $281 plus tax, but the flat rate doesn't apply in a number of cases, including physical abuse. I've also looked at used ones on eBay but they are all used, and usually come with lenses and bags and whatnot I really don't need for around $500-600. The final option is to buy a new Sony Alpha, which is compatible with my existing lenses, but those are going for $600 and up. That, and i'd really rather not buy from Sony since they are, well, you know, evil. So, I'm looking for advice. is it worth shipping it off to Sony for possible repair, or should I just start looking for a new one?
