Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
My friend accidentally dropped my camera and it fell on the lense. It still takes good pictures but I cannot use the zoom. It is slightly bent. Is there an easy way to remove this and replace it.
Not really, zoom lenses are pretty fragile and will permanently be damaged when they get a shock. Most probably the guide rails/pins are damaged inside, and it will need luck and patience to glue them in place (and most of the times glue isn't strong enough to keep them together).
Better sell it for parts on ebay and get yourself a new one (most of the times broken fetch half price of used ones). People need different parts (i.e., the mount, motors, aperture assembly), and it is environmentally great to recycle goods for reuse by other repairers...
