24-70 2.8G ED Broken Focus

Never dropped and never damaged, my prized walk around lens will no longer focus. The ring started to get a little stiff and fail to focus intermittently. Now it just spins freely and will not adjust the focus at all. The lens has also been extremely soft in the corners with a horrible front focus that is barely usable even with -20 adjustment in the camera.

I got a quote from Nikon for 700 USD. Thats pretty steep for an 8 year old lens. Does anyone have a suggestion for a third party repair company that may be more reasonable?

For 500 more I could have a new on, or even a Tamron VC G2.

So what would you do? Salvage or write it off?  Thanks,.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2
