Sooo, I let a friend of mine borrow my 24-70 and when I picked it up today the lens hood had a crack and the section that has the red ring is slightly off, I noticed the barrel didn't look even when it was closed.

Here's what I know:
The barrel is fine
The AF works with zero issues
Both the focus and zooming ring still smoothly rotate
I don't hear any strange sounds from inside
it doesn't appear to have impact damage
no cosmetic damage other then whats in the photos
aperture works fine

I'm not sure of how this happen or how this could have happened but i'm hoping it's an easy fix. I recall seeing this before but i'm not sure how to go about attempting to fix it or whether I could try it ge it repaired.

I tried using even pressure but in order to prevent further damage I stopped.

If any one has any idea of what can be done that would be great.

Step 1: Hit your friend. Hard. Preferably with a pillow so nothing more criminal ensues.
Step 2: If you're worried, send it in to Canon.
Step 3: Send friend the bill.

Have you taken a picture of a flat plane? Like a brick wall to see if there are any shifts in focus? Sounds to me that it DID hit something, or at least got slammed unto the floor if he had it in his camera bag.

I got the ring popped back in place...... Now the focus ring won't move. I'm not going to make any tries at turning it as I don't want to mess up the focus motor, I'm boxing it up to send off to canon tomorrow morning.

I could hardly care about how they look, I just did a quick photo to show a slight damage. It's not like these are for anything other then showing the off set ring. But thanks for your awesome comments, next time say something that has to do with the topic or don't say anything at all. Moving on.

Also I was using a 50 1.4 @ 2.8 with kenko extenders.

probably the best approach no matter what, make sure you have your friend pay for repair and shipping, it's inexcusable.

I've got a good guess on how it happened, that looks like a drop to me. Sounds like it took a lot of force to move the displaced part back into place, that usually means it took an equal amount of force to displace it...bam!

Your "friend" should have fessed up immediately to what happened. I would not let your "friend" borrow any more of your equipment.

consider joining CPS before you submit it for repair and they will give you a discount. you have 40 points towards the 20 point requirement for the Gold Level. Assuming you meet the employment requirements, the Gold level gets your friend a 30% discount on repairs of the Brick.

How good of a friend is this guy? I ask this for 2 reasons...

1)When my friends and I lend/borrow, cameras/lens/tools/wiv​es/cars, whatever, it's basically understood that if it doesn't come back exactly the way it left, then the borrower assumes responsibility to fix the issue.

2) You never mentioned how/what exactly happened to the lens. Is there any chance that this actually isn't your lens? I know a person that let a FAMILY member borrow a T3i, and the returned camera was actually the borrower's own T3i with a bent lens mount.
