    or u can also try to PM fatigue (but i think he has too many repair cases on hand =) )
    I trust all my stuff with bro fatigue.

    But he has stopped taking in new jobs temporarily due to overload of requests.

    btw what lens is it har?
    I was squinting at the photo. Is it 18-135?

    If 18-55 then probably don't bother repairing. Cost would be similar to buying a new one.
    18-135.... hmmmm
    Exploring! :)

    You may want to get / borrow a lens to test is your body is ok first then determine your next step of repair.

    Not really accepting jobs these few days but how to say no? daredevil123, night86mare and cleonbus gave the referral.

    To beebeeice, Don't wipe the front glass, there might be some small glass particles from the filter that could scratch the front optics. you can only use the blower to clean it.

    bro, perhaps maybe you could start camera repair courses for potential camera technicians to learn from you....

    good $$ and it will also ensure that your skills will be passed on..

    without you, everyone will be at the mercy of canon/nikon service center...

    CSC changed that portion that was out of shape and cost about 120 dollars...

    Its been couple of yrs now and he is still using it....

    EPIC HORROR MOVIE with quite a SURPRISING ENDING

    Now his camera is long overdue and he still recommend my services.
    Such a nice guy.

    Let me clear all my backlogs and we can set some time for such repair courses.
    We can form a small group, have a cup of coffee, a short discussion and sharing of tips and tricks. Need to invite DD123, he knows a lot of technical stuff as well.

    I have trusted Brother Fatigue with my lens now. Just passed it over to him this evening.

    He is also a fellow rider! My other hobby is cycling. So it is good to know that he cycles too. XD

    And thanks fatigue for helping me despite the many things you still have to repair.

    Without you, i think i have to blow some big bucks. And there goes my Holiday money XD

    Thanks Once again
