16-35 GM front element damage

Hi Guys,

I was on a pebble beach this evening when my tripod got knocked over and the front element of my 16-35 GM got damaged. Seems to be 4 or 5 small scratches with one significant dent in the glass.

I have three questions:

1) Do you think it'll effect image quality?

2) What's the easiest way to test that?

3) How easy is it to get repaired?

Just my luck after years of third party APS-C gear I finally invest in FF and a nice lens and that's the first time I scratch it.

Cheers in advance

Dan
