Hello all, about a year ago i did the unthinkable, i left my Canon 28-135mm on the hood of my car and it ofcourse rolled off and onto the ground. One of the lens elements is loose and i believe another is heavily scratched from the fall so i am wondering if it's worth fixing or not. I have been using my backup camera on a tripod and controlled with a remote so i would LOVE to have this lens available and on that camera instead of just having my tokina 12-24 for it. I see that they are around $400 new so can i get this fixed for $200 or less? I have never sent anything to canon to be fixed or clean so i don't know the cost of these kind of things or who to call.
And if it is too much to fix, any suggestions on anything fun i can do with it? Maybe make a cup or something?!?!?!?
