I almost had to buy a R6 before I wanted to.  The R6 is on my buy-list when the time is right.  That time was almost tonight. 

The 6D and 7D MK2 is doing the job for me right now.  I must not have attached the Canon 70-200 2.8L IS and 1.4x properly to the 6D.  I was holding onto the lens when the 6D separated from the lens combo and fell to the forest floor.  A loud Thud!  Oh no.  6D landed on the backside.  I picked up the 6D and re-attached to the lens.  The camera did not turn on. Oh no.  

Tried taking off the lens and re-attaching.  Still nothing.  Last ditch attempt, take out battery tray and re-insert.  That did the job.  A big PHEW.  I got to stop dropping things.  Thankful it was the camera and not the lens+1.4x that hit the ground.  Based on past experience, the lens drop may have resulted in some damage.  Camera looks fine.

Glad things worked out well. Kind of scary even just reading of your experience.

Thanks Ed.  It was scary for me.  I had only started to use the 6D recently, this year.  A brand new camera.  Very hesitant to use at first but grew to really like the camera.
