Dude; that lens is NOTHING compared to the 10-22 that I sent to canon when I dropped it 50' in Arches.. They charged me $85 to "repair mid-zoom housing" when it was obvious every lens element was damaged AND the barrell was cracked.
Maybe it was just someone in the repair dept having a good day.. but I'll never stray from Canon because of the service I've received on that lens, my 70-200 2.8 (since sold) and my 20D (also sold)

i got it fixed... they quoted me 275 to fix it and ship it back... well worth the cost to fix as i didn't want to spend another 1600 for the same lens again... but yea.. it is in perfect shape now, gotta buy a new uv protector, but i'll def be using my lens hoods with all my L lenses for now on... =)

Good news, glad to hear it wasn't too bad.

Unless you're shooting in blowing rain, or dusty/sandy conditions, don't bother with a UV filter. It won't provide any more protection than your hood, and you'll be wasting $100.

Good to hear. One of the reason you buy L's.

Use a slim filter with a brass housing this time though. Regular filters can cause vignetting, and brass is softer than aluminum to soften impacts, lessen damage.

Heliopans are second to none, are my favorites.
