Stupidly tripped in my own home tonight while carrying my 7d with my EFS 10-22 mounted. The camera hit the tile floor hard and landed about 3' away, I knew it wouldn't be good when I saw the lens lying a few inches from the 7d in 2 pieces. I was shocked. I have never done anything like this in many years of camera ownership.

The 7d appears to be just fine and functions normally. The ESS 10-22 not so good although all the glass elements appear ok. The rear mount appears to have sheared off the lines at the 3 little plastic tabs where the attachment screws are and 2 ribbon cables are broken. I will be sending it to Canon USA Repair next week.

I think many Canon lenses have a made to break point that takes up some impact and prevents greater damage. Looks bad, but may not be as bad as it looks.

Sorry to hear that you dropped your camera. I guess the one good thing is the 7D is ok. From you picture, it looks like the repair will be expensive (just a guess) and unless your a CPS member and receive a discount on repairs, I would agree with MDJAK.

All the best.

Why give such bad advice?

That lens can be repaired. As already noted - the lenses are designed to break off like that to make sure the camera mount doesn't gets destroyed. And also to save the expensive parts of the lens.

Lots of people have repaired similar lens damages at quite modest costs compared to the perceived damage on the lens.

Which is a case where some of the little emoticons available are quite meaningful to use. Lots of people who see a lens split in two assumes that the remaining value of that lens really is very close to zero.

What fun would there be if you manage to trick someone into throwing a way a repairable lens?

A few cables and a plastic part or two: $29. Labor to do the job: $229. Just guessing. It is still half the price of buying a used one.

Have you ever played the board game Monopoly? Thus the "start from go" reference. As in "start from go, do not collect $200." It was the equivalent of an emoticon in words. If my post could trick someone they need a lot more help than they can garner here. And the OP said he's sending it in. I doubt my tongue in cheek reply would change his mind.

MDJAK- I agree your "joke" could easily have been taken the wrong way, especially since the next post after you, agreed with youre idea to just throw the lens away. Maybe you could have added some help along with your joke which might have made it more clear and useful.

He said he was sending it in to Canon. What help did he need? Honestly, I would've stepped on the pedal of my cool Spider-Man stainless steel garbage can and tossed it. But that's me. I'm a wacko.

I am hoping you are right. I bought it new about a year ago and although I don't use it heavily it is one of my favorites .

The physical damage appears to be the 3 plastic screw attachment tabs and the ribbon cables. I will call or email Canon Monday. To minimize any further damage I carefully packed it back in its original box.

Be careful out there!

I have homeowners insurance but they won't pay anything on something like this.

Since Hurricane Andrew in 1992 and the 2004 hurricanes here in Florida homeowners coverage is limited, hard to get and quite expensive.

I will just bite the bullet and pay for it out of pocket. Its a great lens and was in like new condition.
