I was quoted a +$350.00 front element replacement after CPS discount, for my canon 24-105mm.
It started showing what I took as front element coating flacking - did try to clean it up with a lens cleaning solution, but did not work,
Before attempting anything else, and as it was due to a check anyway, I send it for C&C with a voucher.
They emailed me with a quote and saying that the front element was damaged/chipped. Therefore the suggested replacement and cost.
I said no and upon return took it to a local camera repair. The tech took a close look with a magnifying glass, and then grabbed a botle of eclipse. Did the cleaning right in front of me, and the spots just vanished - " there is no glass damage at all - it was just some oily/sticky spraying you got in it, nothing else" (no charge btw)
Canon : -1
local RS: +1
