Well that pretty much seals it for me that even if a bargain comes along I'll pass. It's ridiculous that a somewhat expensive 3 year old lens can't be repaired.

That is true Paul & one of the reasons I bought my AF-P 70-300VR instead of the 70-300 CX. At $186 bucks or so I'm not worried if it breaks. With a new 70-300 CX you get a five year warranty, but at a $900 price.

When I had to have my 10-100 non-pd lens repaired I had to wait a couple of weeks for parts, (the aperture unit). That did not sit well with me & made me wonder if we are starting to see CX lens spares starting to dry up. If true that's a darned shame.
