    Recently I was given a Canon EOS 1N RS which has a slight damaged mirror. It looks like someone accidentally has bumped the mirror with a screwdriver or something similar. The bump is in the corner, and only affects images taken at F5.6 and higher.
    I'm wondering if someone know where I might find a replacement mirror?

    I've bought similar mirrors online but they were glass, about 1mm thick. Try the google for plastic pellicle mirror
