repair or replace :(

April 19th, 2010
has anyone sent in a lens for repair?? Is it worth it? I've heard that once a lens is damaged, it is never the this true??

My 90lb pup jumped on me today, threw me off balance....and well you can imagine the rest! My new 100mm macro suffered the damage. I'm in tears!! :(

I'm trying to decide if I should have the lens repaired or just save up and replace it.....

It depends on the lens. If it was a high end lens, yeah, I think so. If it is a standard, easily replaceable lens, they are disposable plastic made that way to replace.

That's terrible to hear. I have dropped cameras and damaged them (back when they made cameras that could take it), but never damaged a lens, amazingly enough. I would be freaking out.
