Managed to drop my camera and 17-70 from about 6 inches onto laminate floor.
Evidently, the lens took the impact and is now a manual prime, with something rattling about inside
Anyone know the most affordable (but reliable) way to fix it?

Oh dear. Then I suppose it's quote time from Johnsons et al.

From recollection repairers mentioned and recommended on this Forum are Johnson's Photopia, link, Harrow Technical, link, and Asahi Photo Ltd, link.
