My wondering mind started rolling tonight... I always hear of people claiming front elements cost "x" amount and everything in topics from filters to other subtopics, yet after a lengthy search on here I have not found one single person who got a quote from Canon for a replacement. Most topics end with "I will send to Canon and get an estimate"... Yet that is where it ends.
Does anybody actually have an accurate, Canon given estimate for a brand new front element? Just wondering if they really just cost the $200ish or are actually much more expensive. I know they vary per lens, but as a general idea...
(And no... I did not scratch one of my lenses or anything like that... Just curious!)
