So I had a great day shooting fall colors yesterday. Was hurrying home on my bike and wiped out on some slick pavement. One piece of equipment in my bag got damaged, a Canon 15-85 zoom that I use a lot. It's a bit crooked now and while it's technically, somewhat functional, the damage is serious. Notice the gap next to the focus ring on the bottom of the lens and how the barrel beyond that points up. The electronics all work but focus is WAY off, kind of like a Lensbaby tilt/DOF effect. Pretty ugly.
I know it's hard to say without seeing it up close, but is something like this worth trying to repair? Is it even possible with this kind of damage?
This lens had some off-center focus issues already--it was much softer and had a stronger vignette on one side. The IS seemed to make this worse on some shots. I didn't fully diagnose those faults until after the warranty was up. I wanted to get those repaired, but now with the additional damage it seems I will probably just have to junk this and go with a new one.
Any and all comments & advice sought and graciously accepted.
