  • No I don’t think so. I’m taking on board everything you say as you’re obviously a person of great stature and wisdom. Who can argue with you….?

  • Created discussion thread Broken 70-400 SSM 2
    Hi, does anyone know of a lens repairer who could look at this? The zoom ring just came apart. If I can’t get it repaired, I’ll just have to sell it on for parts.  Maybe someone could use it to ...
