    I have this lens (had it for about 4 months...)
    When I got it the auto focus was not working, It registers but doesn't move therefore I think it may be to do with the internal Autofocus ring, I could replace this for about £25 but I run the risk of damaging the lens as I have never opened a lens before...

    So I was wondering how much a Certified Canon Retailer would cost (on average)

    phone canan for a quote ;)
    or contact a local store for one. Either way I would not open the lens yourself to fix- not unless you dont care if it breaks (because with no instruction and probably the wrong tools and no experience you will most likley do more damage than good)

    No one can say for sure till the exact cause of the problem has been determined.

    Thus, you need to let Canon have a look at the lens and give you an estimate.

    If it turns out to be anymore than £35 - £40 I think I'll Leave it, I dont mind Manual focus, Autofocus is just a tool of convinience
