Just a good news story-lens repair.
5

Dropped my beloved 17-55 (an L Lens by any other name), f2.8 lens last week. No visible damage, but next thing I knew pictures razor sharp on the middle and most of one side, but very soft from one side of the middle to the edge of the frame.

Need it desperately next week for a trip. Contacted Canon on Thursday, they said a six working day turn around which meant I might get it back in time. If not, buy another, no choice really.

Sent it Thursday they got it Friday. I enclosed a note saying if at all possible could it be done in time for posting on the following Friday? Today, Monday they contacted to say it was all done, (lens element replaced as well as three barrels and various other little bits) and I would have it back tomorrow.

Excellent service Canon, thank you so much.
