Hi guys

On a recent trip I put my 24-70 L II lens mounted on a 5Dmk 3, inside a camera bag, during tea time I somehow stupidly put it on a chair and it dropped from 2 feet onto concrete floor, on visual check it seemed ok but somehow I feels panaroid, with a test shot as uploaded, it was shot at 61mm with wide open aperture, being 100% crop at bottom left and bottom right corner. It seemed the right image seemed a bit softer? can I get it fixed in canon if there's a problem:cry:

I've dropped a few lenses in the past and sometimes they are OK and sometimes the mistake costs you some money.
Take a few more pictures with it before you decide. (It looks a bit soft to me in your post.)

Here are two more test shot, the first one are crops of the extreme lower corners at f 5.6 and the other one being far left and right at f6.3, somehow canon CS told me that they can't see the problem of me indicating that the right side seemed softer than the left side and just send me back the lens in half a day..

I once dropped a 135L, from almost waist high, onto an indoor basketball court. The hood flew off. The lens was undamaged.

Shoot it. If a problem becomes apparent, do something. Until then, shoot it.

I do not like the sharpness of the first two images. If it were my lens, I would send it for repairs.

In fact, on a trip I did drop a 70-200 f4 IS on a hardwood floor, and it damaged the IS system. The repairs cost about $550. Fortunately, I had the insurance - I sent them the Canon service bill and it covered it.
