| Re: Cost to repair 24-105 scratch? |
You can buy a front element and replace it yourself in about 10 minutes - just peel up the makeup ring, remove 6 screws, replace it with the new one. I believe they are $99 (may have changed I haven't looked at invoices in a while) Part #YG2-2198
But the guy asking for $200 off for a front element hairline scratch is just seeing if he can get a deal. We discount them $75 for a nonvisible (in photos), nonflaring scratch and people can't wait to get them.
How does one know when the front lens element is a simple "pop in" and when alignment adjustment by screws or shims is required?
In your experience, does the Canon Parts telephone staffing have the ability to lookup the proper part number based on the lens name?
