Just a reminder to everyone that **** happens, and perhaps that insurance is a good idea when it comes to higher-end gear. I've photographed some pretty sketchy spots along the coast, and my 6D has gotten its fair share of sea-spray and drizzles. It has always held up well. Yesterday, a near 15 ft wave came out of nowhere (normal sets were 6-8 ft) and completely drenched me, my 6D, my 17-40L, and my backpack (with 24-70L II in it), and my tripod. Even with immediate drying efforts, the 6D was toast, along with the 17-40. Thankfully, the 24-70 was able to stay dry in my pack. All total, about $2500 in gear was lost. I'm just glad I have insurance, so the lens and body have now been mailed off and I should be getting reimbursed within a few days. At that point I might pick up a 5D3 instead, might as well. The damage: The last photo ever taken by the 6D, a test exposure as I set up to do a 1 minute long-expo. I'm about 15 ft up on a rock, which the wave completely covered. Goodnight, sweet prince.
