Yea I dropped my lens and I’m wondering if it’s better to buy a new lens (the one I have is quite cheap to replace) or if I can just fix it myself. I think the problem is that focus ring has skipped a thread and won’t allow me to turn it and is visibly crooked. Also the zoom ring won’t turn all the way either side and feels crunchy when turning (probably has dirt in it).
