My clumsy best mate dropped my Minolta Z2 today and broke the battery compartment door. I have sent it back to Minolta for a repair estimate, but I'm not hopeful that it can be repaired, as internal damage may have been done - although it did work after the impact - and that it may prove uneconomical to fix in any case.
Has anyone else had any experience of this, or similar, and what was the outcome?
Luckily it wasn't my Nikon D70 that got wrecked or my friend would have been a victim of GBH...! Anyway, he's paying for the damage.
