I recently noticed that my go-to 28-70L lens will now only zoom to 50mm, and I can rock/tip the front extension about a quarter of an inch... almost like something has come loose/off inside. No impacts that I am aware of. Seems to be working fine otherwise though... Time for Canon service?... or can this be done as a home repair for the not-to-faint-of-heart?

Thanks for any insights!

I don't know much about home repair, so I would go for the service option. However, Canon has stopped servicing this lens years ago, so you may have to look around for independent repair shops. Good luck.
