Hey guys, long story short my 16-35 L II was damaged, the lens broke off the mount (snapped clear off) and a cable connecting the chip to the lens ripped. The glass elements are fine. I brought it into george's camera in the city for a quote ($45) and after a few days of no response I called them up today and was put through to their technician who was a bit rude. He quoted me $560 for parts and labor, says he needs to replace the barrel. I feel like I might be overcharged or something, I have done some research and turns out this has been a common issue with this lens (snapping off the mount) and the people in those threads have all paid less than $200 fixed from Canon (USA). Was wondering if anyone has had similar experience or know of a good place with fair price in Sydney to get it fixed, thanks!
