I need some other opinions to see if my lens is messed up. I had my Magic Drainpipe in my bag and I accidentally dropped it about 2-3 feet while it stayed strapped in the bag and now I just noticed it may look different inside the lens. I don't know if it was already like that or if it was always like that since I almost never look directly into the lens, since I just shoot with it.

It's nighttime in California right now so I can't really go outside to test if the zoom lengths are working properly, but that's something I'll do tomorrow.

On Ken Rockwell's website, it shows when you look through the lens, it should just be wide throughout the whole lens body when you look glass to glass with nothing in between, but with mine you can see an element moving around when you zoom in and out, which is what I'm worried about since I haven't found any other photos online of Magic Drainpipes and their innards.

Overall, does anyone else have a Magic Drainpipe who can care to share? I'm worried something's stuck now and it may affect any shooting. It zooms in and out 80-200 but I don't know if it's supposed to be any wider or more zoomed in.

I've been looking here and at Fred Miranda as well as Google for images of the inside of the lens but I haven't any luck.

If anyone has an opinion please share! I don't know if it's something worth bringing to the shop to check on! I might be going crazy but anybody else would probably be too in my situation!

had a quick look & can't find any decent pics either, I did see a parts catalog here: http://www.micro-tools.com …on/EF%2080-200%202.8L.PDF (external link)


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", and an M5, also an M6 that has had a 720nm filter bolted onto the sensor:
