Canon EOS 5D, Mirrorless
About nine weeks ago I was out photographing the Copenhagen Cantate Choir and mid concert one of my two Canon EOS 5D's locked up and the viewfinder went black. As I took off the lens it became apparent that the mirror had come off the shutter and gotten stuck, luckily it hadn't damaged the sensor or the rear element of the lens.
I have only read about this issue, with this 5D model, on Canon's homepage, and have never come across an actual case or testimonial from a photographer. If you should happen to stumble upon this post, maybe your during a background check of the 5D prior to a purchase, I can assure that Canon covers this particular issue via an extended warranty.
