| p.1 #8 · 24-105 dropped...anybody have a repair estimate? |
Doctorbird, when it came back was it performing as well as when you sent it in? I'm kind of worried it won't come back as sharp as it was before I dropped it.
Also, how strict are they on having to be a professional photographer to get in to the CPS program? I have enough points for a gold membership, but this is mainly a hobby. I only work a few gigs a year.
My lens came back as good as new or better. During the repair they check everything on the lens and make sure that it's all up to spec and cleaned. Early samples of this lens suffered from a bit of a flare problem. Mine was adjusted for this before the accident, and no sign of this after the accident repair.
Canon's service is excellent (barring a few exceptions, I guess). With the gold CPS you get preferred service. As a practical matter, it seems that one qualifies solely on the equipment points, regardless of what some of the statements in their web site says. They are quite receptive on the phone if you want to give a call to CPS directly. In fact, you can confirm with a call to the repair service that you can do this. I remember now that's what I did.
Hope this helps.
