Well so as seems to be common (with me anyway) when you talk about perhaps getting rid or or selling something, that something gets to hear about it and tries to be awkward.

In this case, yesterday I posted about perhaps trading in my camera for a new one and so an hour or two later my camera decided to fall out of my car onto the concrete below.  Subsequent attempts to take photos resulted in virtually black images.  The mirror isn’t functioning and moving out of the way to capture images and is also effecting auto focus.

I’ve taken it into the shop for an estimate; hopefully it won’t be too expensive as otherwise it looks to be okay.

So either this is pushing me to change cameras or the camera is trying to devalue itself to the point I can’t afford to switch.
