Thread: Buy a new one or get it repaired?

    Default Buy a new one or get it repaired?

    Hi all!

    I need advice here.

    I sent my camera and lens for repair and the girl called me to break te news that my lens is causing the problem. The repair cost is $101 (w/o GST yet). I own a Canon 28-100 lens which comes with my Canon EOS300 body.

    Should I spend the money repairing for is better for me to get a new lens?

    What should I do? Any experience in using a repaired lens?

    Thanks and I look forward to any advice.


    Kindest regards,
    Bee

    sell your lens "as-is" and buy another lens.

    hi guys, thanks for the reply.

    Where can I sell my new lens and any good recommendations on a good yet not so expensive lens?

    your lens is new? can't you invoke the warranty then?

    Actually no. A few years already and it has been with me for a few years now, from India to China to Europe..... Rather sad to part with it.

    well...if it's a good sample and it has sentimental value, then you might as well just repair and keep using it.

    WOW! So expensive. The EF 28-135, is it a good lens? Can it be used if one day I upgrade to use a Digital SLR?
