CPS - REPAIR
« on: December 18, 2012, 09:59:26 PM »
Just wondering on the COST focus repair in that the Limiter on the 70- 200 MK II now only works at 2m instead of 1.2m as well. don't know how/when it happened nothing is physically wrong with lens  but this limits HEAD shots etc.. Tried moving the switch back and forth and the basics seemly. Maybe its a pin in the lens to body contact area but it also fails on on other cameras so it is the Lens.

Now how much  COST if any of you have had experience with a repair in this realm the lens is 2+ years old warranty i think is gone. and its my go-to lens for most things complementing my other go-to the 24 mkII.

thank you all keep posting your answers please.

The lock system is totally within the lens.  Its likely a mechanical issue, but there will be a minimum price just to tear it down and look at it.  I'd guess $300 minus any CPS discount you have.
They can't tell whats wrong until they open it up, if the AF motor itself is broken, its big $$$.

Works fine sharp as a tack from 2M to infinity just  something is telling it to not go under 2M (switch is effectively stuck in that position even thought it moves!)

Likely that a mechanical liinkage is broken, but it can be other parts as well.  As long as its a mechanical part, the price should not be excessive.  It involves a lot of labor to tear down a lens and reassemble it.  Hopefully, they would also give it a re-alignment and adjust for any decentering or AF accuracy.  Thats a time consuming process as well.
