mogud.. I hear that they are designed that way.. Wow! that must have been quite a scene. Dang! I hope he didn't get hurt.


If I remember, the photographer was hit pretty hard by the bunch of players storming into the sidelines.

Just dropped it off at Canon.. Maybe I'll have it back good as new in a few days. Can't afford a new one.

Sign up at Canon Price Watch. Certainly, there will be a half off sale soon....

Maybe the cost of repair will be half off?

Lynda these are terrible news. I can almost feel the pain as I believe all here have dropped a lens or camera at some point.
If the repair of your lens is too expensive would you consider getting a used but super clean 600f/4??

I have one for sell here at FM as I am switching to the new version. Please check out my link if you have the time. I hope that at the end you get a lens back!

Good grief! The parts list is unreal.. I don't even see the ribbon cable in that jumble. Thanks for the link. Wow!


look on page 4....CY1-2858, there is a ribbon cable on that...you can see it how it is bent and hugging the rest of the part. is this about the area that your lens broke?

Looks like a clean break. I wouldn't be surprised if it was designed that way. Those 3 Itty bitty screws are just there for show...

I hope that you swept up all of the sharpness granules that spilled out. The lens won't work without them.


Those 3 Itty bitty screws serve no purpose and are there to remind you that if you drop the lens, YOU'RE SCREWED...
