p.1 #1 · repair of a 24-70 2.8 mount


Anyone have any idea what it will cost to repair the lens mount on a 24-70? Looks like the lens mount took a hit and won't mount to the camera? lens is 3 years old, don't know if the warranty would hold when it was my fault i dropped it. thanks

Nope, same thing happened to me a couple of years ago. Any sign of damage voids the warranty. As for cost, I recall it was around $400. There may be more wrong than just the mount, the internals don't like stuff like that.

I insured my lenses. Funny that "regular" insurance, meaning for fire, water etc. damage was just a few dollars a year. But when I told them that I'd like get reimbursed even if I drop it they raised the price almost 10 times. I now insured all my lenses for $10,000 and with AllState this costs me a $100 a year. (with all the discounts I could get)

I have one in the shop right now for a few other issues that are well beyond a bent mount and it's just a bit over $500. I'd guess you'd be waaaay under that if it's just a mount that needs replaced.

When mine hit the pavement, I was still able to mount it, but there was also internal damage. Being that the OP can't mount the lens, I would guess that there could be significant internal damage, thus my cautionary statement.

I just got my 24-70 2.8 back from Nikon. The total was $ 584.90 for the repair. As soon as I got the estimate from the web site I called and gave them my credit card. I had it back in two weeks. That's the only good thing I had with the entire experience.

If you can find the mount, it'll cost like 50 max. Nikon is a super ripoff.

You may be able to call up Nikon parts dept. and order the mount. Replaceing it yourself isn't really that difficult (with a few importand details). However, if you have damaged the mount, there is an excellent chance that the impact also caused a fair bit of internal damage. This is my best guess as to why a damaged mount costs so much to repair.

Based on my experience of having a 24-70 dropped 5 times in total!!
Long story but only once was it totally my fault.
Finally was replaced by the insurance company of the restaurant that I was eating at.
(A waitress knocked it off a chair)
I would have to say more than likely the zoom mechanism is also bent.

The 24-70 is pretty delicate in this regard.

I had a 17-55 lens that fell off a table while attached to a D90 and the lens was fine.
The D90 had a cracked LCD screen cover though.

I dropped mine about 3' onto a concrete surface. I could not mount the lens at all. I sent it in to Canon repair and they fied it and the total cost was $315.
