List it on eBay and sell it as-is for parts. Explain that it was dropped and the AF no longer works. Someone who knows how to fix it will pay decent money for it... I'd venture around 900-1000... then buy yourself a new one.

exactly what i would do. i think you'll be surprised how much you get for it.

He's very sorry and has offered to pay for the repair, but I don't think I can bring myself to let him pay THAT much.

Sorry to say, but it was your fault, too. Nice boyfriend to offer to pay, but you're a smart girl not to make him. Perhaps he'll "make it up to you" anyway. :p

I dunno. $800 always seems a lot in the short term. It never is in the long run.

do you have enough gear to qualify for the Canon Professional Services (CPS) program?

need 2 bodies of 20D or higher, and 3 qualifying lenses.

$100 GOLD membership nets you 30% off of repairs....bring that $871 bill down to $610

plus the other benefits of the CPS program:
2 clean & check vouchers
EOS Book
CPS Strap (heck, sell this for $40-50 to help offset the membership price).

100% not all his fault. Still mulling over what to do. I haven't sold much on ebay, but am thinking about having them send it back to me and throwing it up there.

I do qualify for CPS but didn't renew this year. Can I sign up after the fact? Or would my broken lens be a "pre-existing condition"?

Just called and asked. I can decline the repair and then have them send the lens back to me, sign up for CPS and then send the lens back in and get the discount. Hmm...might do that.

it will save you at least $100 once you factor in the CPS membership cost, then like I said, sell off the strap and other membership items if you want to off-set that membership fee.

Then you can get your boyfriend to chip in on the repair costs, and it won't "hurt" so bad for you :lol:

I renewed mine at the beginning of December and still haven't received my strap, book, etc. :-( only received my vouchers so far.

Very sorry to hear this. I would probably cry too!

Try to think like this: "It is just money. Small pieces of paper". :-|

Really? I asked my rep over at Allstate, and they don't offer any type of rider policy for accidental damage. However if it gets stolen, It is definitely covered under my home owners policy.
