Actually, I was thinking about the need for the initial repair you 
mentioned rather than the accident.  Just one of those things, I guess.  
Thx for the reference to B&H - that's a pretty good price.  I would like 
to have the 24-105 and a second 5D MK II body, as right now I am using a 
40D as a backup in case the 5D failed.  Although, right now I am mainly 
focused on a bag with one camera and one lens and a really good light
