The new mark II lens is as solid as the previous model but it won't take being banged off something hard or dropped - no lens will. The lens hood is made from carbon fibre - same as the old model. This isn't a warranty repair because it's clearly abuse (in whatever form that happened). If the photographer has the lens insured against all risks then claim on the insurance for accidental damage.
