p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 35L "focus stuck" after drop?


I recently tripped and my 35L gently touched the pavement while in my camera bag. At first, I didn't notice any problems, however, i tried using it at my friend's birthday party and I noticed the something was wrong.

From what I can tell, the lens now suffers from the very common 50 1.4 focus stuck problem.

Have any of you experienced a similar problem? Any idea how much i should expect to pay for the repair? :/

I'd love to get this fixed myself because I'm heading off to vegas on monday and its the only walk around lens i have... canon depot quoted me 10-15 days

The cost will depend on the damage, which cannot be determined conclusively without disassembly. In sounds like a moderate repair j

Send it in, get the repair underway, and rent a lens (a Sigma 35 f1.4 ) if you can from a shop.

If you're a member of CPS Canada, it'll be a fixed rate of about $300.

If the repair price turn out to be too high, and you are willing to DIY.

Use google translation, or find a friend who can read Chinese.
