Canon lens with a catch
Jan 24, 2013

A freind showed me a Canon Japan 16-35 L USM lens today.  He said there was a problem in manual focus.  I spent about a half hour with the lens, and it seemed to work fine in AF, but it would not manually focus at all.  It seemed to be solidly locked, both in AF and MF if I tried to manually turn the ring.  Under the rubber focusing ring, right at the bottom, I felt a bump that seemed to move slightly as I worked the tiny amount of free play trying to focus.  It felt like it had one shotgun pellet under the rubber.

Is this something that could be an easy fix, or where should I have him send it?
