gutted

gave a friend a loan of my wide angle for him to shoot his bros wedding. got it back and put it away. took it out on sunday and when zooming past 14mm it goes so stiff and tight i almost have to force it round!

there is a moral to the story somewhere i reckon

Re: gutted

he said it was fine when he used it and nothing happened to it............ but anyone can tell there is no way it should be as stiff as that...........
he did offer to replace it but he really cant afford it. so i have told him i would get an estimate for repair.

Re: gutted

ok lens is in the service centre, report back says its been dropped and the barrel guides( a small roller type thiny) inside it is broken...... so 180 plus vat!

then the sigma 20-40mm which stopped auto focussing a few months ago. was going to send it to sigma but reckoned on putting it in witht he other ones.......... that is an electrical thing the encoder flex? 90 plus vat i bought this lens second hand about 3 1/2 years ago and love it only cost me 130 so im not complaining.

then a sensor clean on the 30D 32 plus vat..............

Sigh............. im skint! but on the flip isde i text the guy who had borrowed the widey and within minutes he text back saying he would be here tonight with money.

Re: gutted

How unlucky is that and great that your friend has given you the money for the repair costs.

If you have not already committed to the repair give Hitech Camera Repairs a ring.

Hitech Professional Camera Repairs

I would highly recommend them and they are likely to be much less expensive than Canon. They did a similar fix on a Sigma 150-500 after it had been dropped and it cost only 75.

its already in, says it will be ten days which is a bit of a bummer as i wanted it for a shoot in sunderland but, its a authorised canon repair centre, and in glasgow so no postage to worry about.
