I dropped my Canon 75-300 mm lens in the pool.

I dropped my Canon 75-300 mm lens in the pool. There is water in the lens. How do I rescue my baby?!

Water and lenses usually do not do well together.  Do NOT try it on the camera.  The only, tiny, very remote, chance is to put it on a warm, not hot, heating pad.  This will take a long time.  I mean a week(s) or longer.  Do not try the rice in a bag.  That never works.  .............and good luck.

A lot of Canon stuff. Along with, a lot of other stuff.
