Our 70-200 f/2.8 IS mkI hit the concrete this year, and after sending it to Canon for a repair quote, it'd cost more to repair it than to buy another used one ($1500).
Canon shipped the lens back to me, so now the question is: What should I do with it?
Do people actually pay ok money for shattered lenses?
I've heard of people turning lenses into cool household items like teabag holders. Any neat ideas?
If you're curious, here's what Canon says needs to be fixed:
RING, FOCUS ADJUSTMENT
FOCUSING ASS'Y, USM
LENS ASS'Y, 1ST GROUP
FRONT RING UNIT
LENS ASS'Y, 3RD GROUP
