I recently dropped my 50 1.8 with UV filter and lens hood attached about two weeks ago. The lens popped apart cleanly. I've had it close to 6 months so its still under warranty. I debated trying to put it back together myself vs sending it off for repair and waiting for weeks to see what Canon does. I finally bit the bullet and was able to reassemble the lens pretty easily. It works perfectly now autofocus and all. I would definitely try to self fix if you cant then send off to Canon. This lens is pretty basic theres really nothing in it but a electric motor board, the glass, and the gear assemblies. Here's mine in its broken state Good Luck!
