Re: Stiff and squeaky zoom ring and action

I agree. But from checking around, the going price now seems to be around $1300-$1600. B&H has one graded "8" for $900. I thought about getting it but decided to take the plunge and have mine repaired. I know how sharp my lens is and had the unfortunate experience of having to return my first 24-70 because it was soft at all focal lengths and apertures. At least this way I will have a practically new lens with the upgraded Nano coating front element and a 90 day warranty. I didn't need to change the front element and could have saved myself $400. So my thinking for what is my bread and butter lens is to repair to almost as new rather than buy new at $2,000+
