I just had a major disappointment happen. I pulled my camera with the 70-200 2.8L IS USM out of the bag to take a shot of my dogs, pulled the cap off and as I went to grab the zoom ring, the lens fell off the body! It fell from eye level so probably 5.5 feet or so. Landed on the back edge damaging the mount and, rear tube, there also seems to be a spot on the elements as I look through, zoom ring moves between 70-100, no further and, I'm not going to push it. I sent it to Canon, anyone have any idea if it may be repaired or, what it may cost me? Also, does anyone know of any kind of strap for the lens itself?

That's not a bad for a repair price at all. Especially for a lens in that price range. I suppose since none of the elements were damaged, it was mainly a mechanical fix. Not bad at all.
