Broke my 60-250

God nows how it happened but on Sunday morning the 60-250 started flashing between M/AFC/AFS - couldn't work it out. Finally twigged that one of the wee contacts has broken off. Is this repairable? Hoping it is as its a bloody gorgeous lens and only a few weeks old.

Sounds like a warranty repair or replacement to me. I would think it's quite easily repairable but not a DIY job that I'd like to tackle.

Best advice, talk to your supplier.

One of the sdm contacts? That ought to be a very quick and easy job, I think ... easy for me to say, I know, when I don't even own any sdm lens and only have taken a few manual lenses apart (which was surprisingly easy).

Slightly more tricky if it is the ball like contacts. A relevant look into the job here.

Edit: You would need an SDM-part donor? Better send it off.
