Dropped Canon Rebel T4i

My camera dropped from a 3 foot table— when I took a look at it, it seemed that the lens was uneven so I took the lens off and put it back on but the auto focus wasn’t working. I tried taking it off again and noticed that there were some small broken plastic pieces on the lens but they didn’t look like they could affect much. When I put the lens on though, it seems loose like it doesn’t fit right. Is this a mechanical issue with my camera because it dropped or is the lens broken and I need a new one?

Probably both.

Looks like a good time to upgrade to the T7i.  I don't think Canon services the T4i any longer. So, upgrade is in order and be more careful. Smiley Happy

Yes upgrade, even if Canon would repair it would cost a whole lot of money. Upgrade and buy an accidental damage extended warranty too. T7i kit or even the T6i kit whatever your budget allows.

The T4i was not all that good of a Rebel anyway.  It was superseded almost before it came out by the T5i.
