24-70L took a fall. Anyone repaired one of these?

Hey guys. Back last year, my tripod mount failed and my 5d2 and my 24-70L took a 4ft dive to the floor. Since then I've just used my backup 24-70L and the first one just sat sadly in my closet for a year. I think it's about time I do something about it.

The ring mount stayed on the camera, but the lens tore apart. Surprisingly, the only damage from the fall onto thin carpet at a terrible angle, was just the ribbon being torn off. And we know how heavy a 5d2 with grip/batteries and a 24-70L can be. L glass can seriously take a beating.

Now because of the damage, I believe I need a new circuit board. Does anyone have any history of replacing these and have a general idea of the cost?

Or should I just not bother and just try to sell the lens off as is?

Thanks!

Do you have CPS?

Why not send it in for a repair quote?

just send it to canon...it probably won't be that bad...certainly not bad enough to sell it for parts...

I do not have insurance as I'm just a hobbyist.

I have not checked around to see repair prices, just figured I'd ask online to see if anyone has experienced something similar before I do.
