Broken 17-85 have a question...
May 2, 2005

Hi all,

To make a long story short my 17-85 was broken by a relative of mine(who uses canon cameras every day and even has a 17-85) when they got curious and decided to force the lens back into the barrel when it was fully extended. Well it got pushed in with a lot of force and now it doesn't focus anymore past 80mm. Eveything else works so I'm guessing there's a problem with the focus mechanism. Anyone know how big of a deal this is to replace or how long it might take? I have a trip to NY in 5 days and I need this lens. I plan to take it up to the cervice center asap but I'm just curious to know.

Also anyone have any similar experiences? Could be with any lens...I'd just be interested to know how it turned out.

thanks in advance
