Ouch...

I *HIGHLY* doubt that the 17-40 would have survived that, mind you. I've owned both, sold my 10-22, miss it, hope it did not come to a bad end in the evil world.

The only good news I can tell you is... I believe Canon designed the lens mounts to be breakaway, even on the L's. I think someone broke their 17-40 the exact same way. This is to minimize catastrophic damage and make it easier for them to fix. (doesn't mean they'll charge any less but that's a separate issue). The flexboards are on field-pluggable connectors, and if the connectors are broke they might probably change the PCBs. Just my speculation.

Hope you get it fixed soon.

??? Where do you get this?

My 24-70L was dropped a week into ownership. the focus ring and front element was broken, in addition to some damaged internal collar parts. My repair total was under $200 total.

The repair rate is usually a ratio of the lens total MSRP value. My guess would be someting more like 25-50% of total lens value for this repair.

But it is repairable, Canon will provide an estimate usually within a week of recieving the lens?

These are both very comforting comments... it does look like the rear part was ment (in one way or another) be separated in such a situation... as for the parts that need to be replaced it looks like only the plastic inner mount that the front part (where all the glass is held in) of the lens and the ribbon wires... it seems to zoom just fine and seems to manual focus smoothly... Also I will be sending it CPS which has a 3 day turnaround time so the estimate will come in the day its received...

Thank you all, I needed some comfort... for im a money-ill college student who has a serious hobby in photography... ill keep you updated...

It really hurts looking at it.

You should have added the mandatory warning - some of the images may be disturbing - viewer discretion is advised.

all the best with the repairs - hope its lower than your wildest hopes.....

So i dropped my 10-22 today... it broke in half at the manual focus ring all the internal glass is still intact but some of the electric ribbons were ripped off and the inner mount was broken.... See pictures.... Is it fixable?.. and will it cost me less then just buying a new one?

It's fixable. Send it to Canon and get a quote. I don't know if it will cost more than a replacement or not, but since the glass and most of the lens is intact, it will likely require replacement of only a few parts. Won't be cheap, I'm sure. $300+ is my guess, and that's only a guess.

Well you can just save a whole lot of by going for a 1DsMII and a 16-35 so much cheaper

Some personal experience with canon. :D

I would charge the same thing. Just as much to not make the customer buy a new item.

Hate to say it but it looks like an unrepairable lens. Often stores will exchange a P&S camera rather then send it away, when they do this they throw the unworking camera on the ground and smash it. This lens looks very similar to smashed electronics I have seen.

Really sorry for your loss. You can try to get it replaced but there are no guarantees I think.

I feel your pain! Dropped my 30D and Toki on Wed, only from less than a foot - thank god for magnesium body - only a tiny scratch on the paint! But my heart stopped for more than a few seconds! Hope it all works out, let us know. After recent thread on Col_M's 'scrap off ebay' 24-70L I expect Canon will recover it!

This looks really easy to fix. Replace the ribbon and the parts that have sheared off can be unscrewed and the new part screwed back on.

The only issue is if the elements have shifted.

I should be a lens repairer.

Exactly... And from what i can tell the elements seem to be in place I taped it back together and it seemed to be in good order... I actually tried to take a picture with it... but got an Error 99...

The OP says in the fifth reply on this thread....

" yeah... it was more of a fling, it caught on to my backpack when i was putting it on my back and it traveled about 8 feet before it hit and brick wall then the cement ground..."

Come back here.. I'll bite your knee caps off!
