What to do, you experience is needed.
« on: October 31, 2013, 10:15:47 PM »
So today while trick or treating with my son i dropped my camera with a camera with my 17-40 attached to it.  it fell from about 3 feet and landed directly on the lens.  The lens cover popped off and there was a UV filter attached to the lens. The Lens filter glass was cracked in a few places and the metal filter was crushed really hard on one side.  There were pieces of glass underneath the filter glass.  I removed the cracked glass and was able to get the filter off.  Upon further inspection of the lens i realized i was screwed. A small ring from inside the lens was popped out.  I am assuming this is something to do with whether sealing. Pieces of glass are inside the barrel.  can i send this in to canon to get repaired or am i better off getting another one.  right now a new lens goes for 739.00.  if it can be cleaned out and repaired, what would it cost?

your help is really appreciated.

Call Canon.  They generally have a fixed price for a given lens, I think in the $200-300 range.  Good luck!
EOS 1D X, EOS M6, lots of lenses
