Every story needs an ending, and in this case a pretty happy one. Thomas Camera Services in Kent scared me with their initial quote for a replacement lens assembly, but managed to repair rather than renew the lens. I now have a fully functioning SX50 back in my clumsy hands. It cost me 90ukp including postage both ways and VAT@20%, which seems like a fair price given the intricate work required to tackle this kind of kit.

Now all I need to fix is the darned sciatica which has kept me indoors for the last four weeks! I'd pay significantly more than £90 for an end to that.

Here endeth the cautionary tale.
