That's a real shame, I feel for you.

These 'premium' lenses are not cheap and if such a simple issue can render them useless is very worrying, especially if a simple or cheap(ish) fix is not offered or available.

I am pretty confident that in my country the repair service would fix this. On the other hand, a few work hours (at least what the customer pays, not necessarily the earnings) easily buys a new da70 hd in my country too so I would personally rather get a new one where chances are less it will reoccurre.

Always sad to have a paperweight lens!

Is your lens really 'unusable'? If so, sounds like you have a much more severe case than my lens. Please see image I've uploaded to another comment on this thread.
