Broken Canon 16-35 f4 IS worth fixing?

I dropped my Canon 16-35 f4 lens ($1500CAD+tax). Two elements in the 2nd and 3rd group are broken. The estimate of repair is $540 CAD.

I currently have Sony alpha A7 II. If I decide to get a new lens, I will either buy Sony 24-70 f2.8($3000CAD + tax) or Canon 24-105 f4($1500CAD + tax).

I am debating if I should repair the broken 16-35 or get a new one. I am wondering if repairing can make the lens as sharp as a new one?
