You'd probably get $300 in ebay for it the way it is. Or more.

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

Not being funny but... why carry around £1K+ of equipment and no insurance!

This is the first loss of camera equipment I have had in over 40 years of photography.

Cheaper to self insure.

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.

I would check with this place and get a quote,they are Always cheaper and as good as Canon.

Good luck that sucks when that happens,it happened to me twice in the last 18 months.

It's definitely worth getting fixed if possible. That's one of the best lenses Canon makes for a crop camera. My 2 cents anyway. ;)

my bil accidently dropped his camera while we were in yellowstone a few years ago. it was just a 50 1.4 from about 1.5 ft onto cement, but after the drop it was rattling and wouldn't af correctly. he ended up sending it into nikon and they said it was cheaper to get a new one vs fixing it. the 10-22 is more than a 50 1.4 so i would imagine it won't be cheap but repairable.
you could say what we always say on the pelican porsche site, "it'll buff right out" : ) good luck. ken.

Sell it for parts? Could fetch more than repair costs.

Then simply hustle one off CL.

I've seen them go for $450...from quick sells and money hungry broke photographers.

STPIX,

Hope the repairs go quickly and economically!

We all have those moments in life, at least you didn't break a leg or something like that!

Thanks for all the comments & suggestions guys. I really like the lens. IQ is fantastic. I would prefer to have it fixed since I know this one personally. If it can't be fixed reasonably I will buy a new or refurb one and maybe sell the old one for parts.

My floors are absolutely unyielding, ceramic tile over concrete slab throughout the house. You drop something, it's usually toast. Glad it wasn't my arm or leg:)

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who grows attached personally to camera gear!

My wife dropped my nifty 250 while hiking once, I lunged for it over tennis ball sized river stone like it was my first born child. I missed, it hit the rocks and I nearly cried.

I've actually had this same repair done twice on two different lenses. It ends up being around 100 dollars after CPS Gold. It's flat rate and for the 2nd lens they replaced the USM motor along with the back element. The lens fell exactly how it was made to.
Best of luck!

Wow, quite cheap repairs you guys have. My friend damaged his 10-22mm and the repair bill was 400€. And there was just one "ring" loose, not utter destruction like the OP suffered. Luckily he had insurance.

Canon 'Merica has 3 locations. Two in beautiful California. I think shipping and logistics contributes to most of the repair cost in Canon EU.
