Got a ding on the 18-55mm lens zoom ring - replacement for the ring?
5 months ago

Got a ding on my beloved 18-55mm lens zoom ring... my bad, I took really good care of it, until this past weekend when I mistakenly put it unprotected in a larger bad with other objects, so it got this ding. The glass is fine and works well otherwise.

I am wondering if it can be replaced - just the ring cover... I looked at the FOCUS ring -- the outside cover screws out. It's thin metal, on top of other plastic structure parts. I am  guessing the ZOOM ring cannot be that different, and the metal cover screws out and be replaced. But even if it screws loose, there is the filter thread in the way, which is larger, so I am not sure I can take the ring out myself without disassembling the entire front of the lens.

Any ideas if fuji is doing this, where, at what cost?

Thanks!
