Question about Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Lens
The front plastic bezel -- you know, that plastic piece with the writing that the lens shade goes on -- came loose on my EF 24 - 70. Anyone know how to reattach?

CAUTION! DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT DISASSEMBLING YOUR LENS. In 1964, I made the mistake of doing the same thing for a single focal-length lens for my Nikon F. This lens did not even approach the mechanical complexity of a modern zoom lens. Lenses are put together like jigsaw puzzles. I removed one screw and found to go further, I needed to do another. In fifteen minutes, the lens was in 50 pieces on the table. It cost over $175 to have a camera repair man reassemble it. This was a a time when the top of the line Nikon sold for $300 vs. $5000 today. Usually dust between elements does not affect performance, but if it is degrading your pictures, take the lens to a professional. This is not a job for an amateur.

SOURCE: EF 24-70 lens droop...
The zoom creep is an easy fix for Canon. I really do not recommend trying to tighten it yourself, since that would void your warranty.
It is usually free to tighten the zoom ring.

To save the lens from total destruction have the repair done by those that work on this stuff professionally. If you have to ask how to do this then that tells me first you do not have the proper tools to dismantle a lens of this type or have the alignment scope to re-assemble the lens elements properly. From what you are saying here I would think that the packing needs to be replaced or at least cleaned and tightened and the lens is worth the repair. Sorry this is not a DIY job and have it survive.
