I dropped my 50mm 1.2 from about 3ft. It no longer allows me to manually focus, and when I focus automatically the focus is always off. I plan to send it in to Canon soon, but it seems to me there's been structural damage, and I don't want to get my hopes up for repair. What do you think? Has anyone had any personal experience with dropped lenses being fixable or not? Thank you.
I would send it to Canon for repair. It is certainly fixable but the cost is unknown. How bad ? Post a few pictures for sharing please.
People attempted to repair a USM lens but not this lens.
Also, see my other post
It is repairable. It will be expensive but it already is an expensive lens. As you are very much aware of, I am sure.
I dropped my ef 85mm f1.2L mounted on my 1Ds Mk III on a tile floor and the entire front lens assembly had to be replaced. It cost $400 bucks. No damage to the Mk III.
The only place to send it for repair is Canon. Don't mess with anybody else.
