Unfortunately a mishap occurred recently in which my a7711 fell about four feet .....

I had a similar mishap with my NEX-6 resulting in a broken viewfinder glass. Actually it was my 3rd incident in all those years. In 1974 I dropped my MC 2.5/28 and in 2003 I dropped my MD 1.2/50. In both cases the filterring was damaged.
I have got it repaired through a local camerashop/wedding photographer in all cases. Don't remember exact cost as it was covered by my insurance. Definitely less than 100. Everything worked fine after the drop, except the viewfinder. After repair only a few scratches were leftovers. Camera works fine again. The turnaround time was about 4 weeks.

I don't suppose anyone has tried to smack it with the heel of you hand? I don't know what you would have to lose since it's going to the shop anyway. Like I said, it worked for me with Lumix.
