Hi there folks..
Got a bit of a problem, which im seriously pissed off about.. I bought a Canon 100-400mm F/4.5-5.6 L IS off ebay in February, from a US seller.. the lens arrived in a mint condition, still sealed in the box.. I noticed it getting stiffer and stiffer as you get upto 400mm.. then today, its not moving at all, well it is.. but you seriously have to pull to get it out and its leaving deep scratch marks on the barrel itself.. The 'tightening' ring doesnt move more then about 1cm and its fully tight, i'm thinking theres something in there..
Does anyone know if Canon UK will repair it on a USA Warrenty? Ive been told by a un-confirmed source that it isnt.. has anyone else had this problem? If this isnt possible on warrenty, can it be sent back to the US for repair?
Im guessing if its not repairable on warrenty, its gonna be a few quid in repairs.. anyone paid it yet?
thanks in anticipation,
