Hello:

I took my 85 f/1.4D model out of my bag and dropped it on the floor. After trying to use it, I noticed it would not move all the way through the focus range. After closer examination, I noticed the lens barrel is cracked. Ouch!!!!

I love that lens, but really can't afford to replace it right now. Assuming.....there is no internal damage, just needing to pull all the guts out and put them in a new barrel, how much do you think it will cost?

Yes, I can send it in, and probably will, but I need a guess as to whether it will cost 100.00 or 500.00.

I might be best to just find a replacement on ebay, and go with it.

What do you think?

Thanks,

Rich
