Question about Quantaray 28-90mm F3.5-5.6 Autofocus Zoom Lens for Minolta
I dropped my camera (lens pointing up) on a tile floor while on my son's field trip. Two pieces of the sliver locking ring broke off. I can still use the lens to take pictures as long as I keep it pushed against the camera. Is is possible to get just the locking ring? It looks like I could just unscrew the 5 little screws and replace that part. The camera shop told me that it would cost $80 just to send it out to be looked at - new lens is about $90. She actually suggested trying to superglue it back together since I have the two pieces that broke off, I'm a little wary of that. The rest of the lens appears to be fine but I haven't gotten the pics back yet that I took on the field trip.
Thanks for any help,
If you were an authorized service technician you could probably order this part from the manufacturer, and if this camera is really only $90 to purchase new it is very likely the cost of the repair would not be worth doing. The suggestion to super glue the ring back together might work but I would try epoxy being that it is a lot stronger, but remember you run the risk of rendering the lens inoperable when you involve glue with something that relies on moving parts to operate properly. Another suggestion is to find the same lens, but broken, for sale that this ring is not broken on, and use that lens as a parts lens I hope this helps.
