Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $83 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Drop my Nikon D100 camera with a Tamron AF 75-300mm LD lens...lens will not extend, stuck on 200mm. If is worth repair, or can I repair it myself?


First question "is it worth repairing" if it were mine I'd look to see what a new one is worth then divide that in half (cause that's what you might be able to buy a used one for) then figure about $120.00 for cleaning lubricating and adjusting the your lens. With your lens you know what you have, buying used might need the service. you are the one to decide. As for the second question "can I repair it myself" short answer no. If you have to ask if you can repair it then you don't have the necessary tools and general knowledge of how to dismantle and reassemble the lens (and have it work when finished). The lens took a hit and most likely set the inner and outer lens barrels out of alignment causing the inner barrel to slip out of its seal and or focusing gear and hang things up forcing it will break parts causing more repair costs. All else fails get an estimate before repair. Been there with a lens myself and after a couple a months without bit the bullet and had it repaired. Cheers best of luck

Front Extending Lens Barrel Loose on my EF 28-135 IS USM. How can I fix it DIY? how to disassembly? thank you!


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.

My autofocus is broken on my Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D Is it worth it to have it repaired or should I just purchase a new lens? I can take pictures on Manual Focus still and all of the camera functions worth....


As it isn't really a very special lens, I wouldn't pay for a repair, which is likely to be more than the lens is really worth (you will get back a repaired second-hand lens, which might go bad again). Better to put the money towards a nice mid-range zoom.

I have a sigma 18-35. It has not been used in a while and mold has formed on the inside of the lens. How can I open it up to clean?

Permanent smudge or scratch in coating of front element. Price of a new element? Is the element able to be re-coated?


Re-coating is not usually possible and will cost more than a new lens element.

The front element is one of the most expensive parts of the entire lens so replacement is often not cost effective. Fitting it and ensuring correct optical alignment is not a DIY job.

The real question is whether the marking is readily visible in the images and if so whether it's a minor artefact which can be edited out? If so, then repairs to the lens are simply not worth doing.

The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:

Camera lens will not shut properly


Probably not worth repairing. I would look at others in the same category and with 6 or more megapixels. You might find that for little more than repairing an OLD, worn camera you could get an upgrade. You can get a lot more camera for your money now...

As with computers and old cars, it is seldom worth throwing good money at things that have met their life expectancy and, if fixed, will fail for one reason or other in the near future. You fix one thing and another problem occurs.
