I have a broken (or stripped) tension screw on a TS-E 24mm lens. Any idea how to repair or, if it needs to be sent in, how much it would cost?

I've heard these screws break easily - anyone else here ever have problems with them?

I have my TS-E 17 in getting a repair for a lost tilt-control knob.
The quote was about $250 after the CPS discount. This would be reduced (a lot) if just the knob could be replaced ... if not, the quoted price was a flat fee that covered replacement of the tilt mechanism.


Several cameras and more glass than I will admit to.

Thank you for the reply noisejammer. I rented a lens and the locking knob for the shift mechanism somehow managed to break. They think it will cost me about $200 to repair it. Sucks.

Did you have insurance on the rented lens? If you did, it's accidental damage and should be covered completely. If not... ouch!

No, I rented it locally and they don't offer insurance. I won't make that mistake again. I have my own insurance but the deductible is $250 - not much help.
