in 5 seconds, the sensor of my 5D Mark III has blown by the force of a laser. Too close or not, the question arises as to the eyes. In any case, passionate photographers, beware, the warranty does not work incident. Canon says on this subject that the camera has no internal defect but has been damaged by an outside agency. (French and Dutch Source SAV). Your Reflex well be a tank, light can destroy it!
