My favorite lens is failing. 24-70 f/2.8 II. I've tried everything, but nothing fixes it. At times it front focuses, other times back focuses. AFMA doesn't help. I don't really know much about this. At what they are selling for, is it worth it to send it in to Canon and have them try to repair it? When it works, it's fast and sharp. Does Canon give you an estimate prior to repair? And is there a warranty after repair? Anybody have any experience in this?

Yes, send it in. They will call with an estimate first.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

Just to get the obvious out of the way, you don't accidentally flick the switch from AF to Manual Focus do you?

Did it ever work perfectly?

I actually did try the switch. It worked perfectly since I purchased it from Canon in 2014 up until maybe 4 months ago? Thats when I noticed soft and just simply oof images. It's never been out loaned out, so I know there was nothing that happened that would knock it out of sync. I did some reading and found that this lens did suffer from this issue when it was new in 2012, but not much after that. Maybe it misses my 5D3.

Since there seems to be a lull in the activity (nice going, Jay) here's a story, and not about a man named Brady. Usually, when I go on vacation, something requires fixing as soon as I get home. This time the water softener in the garage overflowed; I'd been having issues with it before. So, no big deal, it's 14 years old, time to replace... I thought I'd just have to soak up the water in the garage, and it damaged the dry wall behind the water softener a tad.

Well, my wife went to put some stuff away in one of the spare bedrooms, and informed me that the carpet was soaked. So, it seems most of the water went through the wall from the garage and into the bedroom. Fun times. I'm hoping I dried it sufficiently and won't get mold or mildew. I sucked up several gallons of water with a shop-vac and ran fans for three days.

I installed a new water softener just now, and am waiting for it to cycle some chlorine through the system to sanitize it. What a friggin pain this whole thing is.

Once when we lived in a mobile home and went on vacation, a water pipe had burst and it flooded the place. And you know how cheesy the floors in those things are.

Once it was the hose to the washing machine.

Another time, we came home to find that a pipe had broken on my pool equipment. The skimmer was sucking air, and half my back yard was flooded. Luckily the pump didn't burn up. Must have just happened that day, which is a good thing; we had been gone for almost two weeks.

But it's always something... air conditioners, irrigation plumbing, pool equipment...

Almost makes me wanna just stay home.

Or sell this place and get a condo.

Just curious, how does a water softer overflow? Is it from the brine tank (tub)?

I unplugged the softener from the wall just before we left. But I guess some valve must've been stuck open.

I turned the water off to the whole house once this summer when we were gone for about 10 days, forgetting that it also goes to the auto-fill for the pool. I won't make that mistake again.

Yeah. There's a hole most of the way up that you can hook a drain line up to if you have a floor drain, but we don't. So it just drained onto the floor.

Of course the one time it happened in 14 years, we were out of town.

I broke the old water softener down to throw away, but what do you do with 50+ pounds of wet resin?
And the salt?
