    Default Needs help: where to repair my lens safely and at a decent price?

    Hi all, I just come back from my trip to Europe and too bad I broke my Nikon afs 24-70 there. The zoom ring is stuck and I thought it was some common problem with the screws inside like many others have met with, who eventually paid 200-300 to fix it.

    However when I send my lens to Nikon service centre today they say I have to replace the whole barrel and they gave me a quotation of S$980.

    Just want to try my luck before either pay S$980 or throw this lens away, anyone can recommend me some places where I can fix my lens safely and at a decent price? Or nikon service centre is already the best place to be.

    Thanks.

    NSC would be the best place, but not the cheapest.

    You can try Camera Hospital or P&G

    The famous zoom ring problem with the 24-70.

    $980 is a reasonable price to pay for the barrel replacement.

    It could be the same parts to be replaced but it's a different story when a lens has been dropped.
