My Back-up 40D Died

Had my back-up camera die this weekend while waiting for my 7D to be repaired.  Not unexpected however.  The shutter on my 40D was sounding real funky about a year ago which led to my 7D upgrade.  I had already replaced the shutter once.  It completely crashed this weekend while taking some shorebird photos.  Hoping to get my 7D back this week.  Still waiting on the e-mail from Canon to say that it shipped.  Not sure if I’ll put $216 into the old 40D or not to repair it.

    You gotta have a backup camera body. $216 is a cheap way to get one.
