Sorry to hear about your lens going bad. That's never a good feeling.

Get ready to start looking into a new used one because it will probably cost you about the same. It you get it repaired there is the change that something else caused or is causing the failure, so if you get it "repaired" what are the changes that it will go bad again, and you will end up spending more time and money.

With electronic repairs usually is easier and better to move on with a new piece. Good luck

Fuji UK will repair it for a flat fee of £90 apparently, and that includes a year’s guarantee.  A good used one is around £250 so it’s worth doing, even if I were to just sell it on after.  Still miffed to have to pay for a repair at all though..
