DOH!! I dropped my 50mm f1.8 - it's in 3 peices right now
Jul 23, 2012

Hey Guys,

So last night I was switching out lenses and I accidentally dropped my 50mm lens off the kitchen table. It landed on my (wood) floor and came apart in three peices,

The casing
The focus ring mechanism
the "inner" part of the lens

Nothing seemed to have cracked, I didn't see any little pieces but I can't put it back together I can add a photo if needed, but my guess is that it's beyond my extremely limited repair skills.

So on the plus side it's a super cheap lens at about $100. On the minus side, it's so cheap I'm wondering if it'll cost more to send in for repair than it's worth? While I'm on that topic does someone have a contact for Canon's lens repair department? I've hear stories that sometimes they'll offer you a discount on a new lens if you send your broken one in....
