Repair of a FZ1000 with separated ring

A gasket in the lens of my wife's Lumix FZ1000 (which was 2.5 years old so off warranty) came loose, making the camera unusable (see pic). Panasonic wants to charge us to even talk to us and when we tried to put in the info on their website to get an estimate for the repair, it didn't work for us. Just wondered if anyone had this problem and got it repaired when the camera was no longer in warranty and how much it might cost? Or repaired it themselves? Or should we toss the camera and get a new one (ie. not Panasonic).
