My husband knocked the above lens off the worktop- it bounced, and when I picked it up there was a horrible rattle from the lens back.

I took the back cover off and two bits dropped out - I screwed them back in, tested it & seems to work fine - focuses, seems sharp.

Is it worth getting it checked out at a service centre?

Your husband could make some money repairing those lenses! Good luck with it. Now it has a story.

Well if nothing's rattling around now and it seems fine, I'd say don't worry about sending it in unless it develops some other kind of symptom.

Is it under warranty? I would send it to Canon NJ anyway. Better now than during a shoot that it fails.

Warranty won't cover this - It's not Canon's fault it was knocked off the worktop.

I had this same thing happen to my 50 1.4. It was in my bag, and I must have placed it down too hard. I took off the lens cap and the screw piece and an element were loose. I went ahead and sent it in to be serviced. I believe they charged me $100, borderline for me just saying screw it and just sticking with my shorty forty. It still works great, but not the best build quality. Better than the 1.8 I suppose.
