My D5 lost its mirror, and survived

I had expected this might have been one of the last shots I made with my (second hand) Canon D5 (mark none).

Later that I was playing at home with the burst mode of the old camera, and suddenly it jammed. Inspecting the camera I found the mirror had fallen off. Although I found this seems to be a known flaw of some Canon 5D releases, given the age of the camera (2005/2006), I had expected this to be the end of the camera.

Took the camera to Cameraland and they sent it to Canon, where it was fixed. For free! Replaced the entire mirror house (not sure what that means).
