Any tips or ideas? Yeah, I know. Send it off, right? Money is tight, but I need to finally replace that POS Sigman 17 to 70 mm crap glass and was about to put myself in a little debt and buy the Canon 17 to 40 f4L. The 70-200 lens is almost nine years old.
Oh man, I don't have any solutions for you, but I'll offer you a shoulder to cry on. That's a bummer. Had my 60D fall out of my bag a few weeks ago while getting out of the truck. What a sinking feeling it is when that happens. No functional damage, but I sure knocked the pretty off of it.

Hope you find a cheap and easy fix.
