In response to one request for info:

There was a sigma 24-70 lens attached when it was submerged. I do not know the extent of damage to sensor. When I put in a battery it acts "possessed", rapidly cycling through the set-up and functions menus as if I was pushing the "down arrow". It continues doing this until it shuts down itself or I take out the battery. Using the power off dial does not seem to work.

LCD appears to have dried out, when the menus are displayed I haven't noticed any pixel damage.

"Mountain stream fresh". Who amongst we adventurous souls has not had an accident such as this with our camera?
Regretable loss of equipment, but familiar and humorous as well. Good luck.

And to the winner, consider posting an update if and when the camera is fixed. I am sure more than a few of us are interested but with the feelings of the previous owner in consideration, perhaps hide the post well and include some spoiler notice.

Do not power it up! It would totally destroy it/fry it due to the shorting contacts.
It would be the same as a celphone that would get submerged in water.
You have to be patient and let it dry out.
Even if the outside looks dry, the innards usually still have water in them.
If you are patient and let it dry in 2 weeks (to be sure) then it might be revived.
Celphones that have been subjected to the same condition can be revived after taking off the battery and taking it apart (easy with a celphone..not recommended to a DSLR) and drying it out with a hair dryer.

This would be perfect for me...although if I can't get it working then I'm down about $100. Then again I could always resell it for the same.

He said "best reasonable" offer.
So, you might just be set off by less than a hundred bucks!

It looks like it's too late for that if you read what you quoted.

The fresh mountain stream may be its saviour, if the water isn't very ion heavy there may be little corrosion if the battery was not taken out immediately. I often have to clean electronic devices in de-ionised water. The mech and optics may be damaged however.
