OK....I really need opinions here. Your advice was fantastic for getting my 70-200 f2.8 repaired. So once it has it's new autofocus motor and misc other items.....does that make this lens essentially just like new ? The glass is impeccable so no issue there. Inside a lens (as I understand it) are glass elements that move via an autofocus motor and some sort of moving mechanism. If those items (less the elements) are BRAND NEW.....can I reasonably expect "like new" life out of this.......or should I look to sell it for some discounted amount and buy a new one ??

This lens really works hard in my arsenal. It is 85% of my total shooting and my total shooting is huge.

I know there's no fool proof answer here. Just looking for opinions.
