I have a 28-135mm Canon lens that I picked up a few years ago for $200. The zoom has started sticking in the last couple of days. It still focuses fine, but can be annoying trying to zoom in/out (sticks in the middle). Should I look for a replacement or a repair?

Two ways to look at it:

  1. This is the perfect excuse to upgrade to a newer and better lens.

  2. You really love this lens and that is the one you truly want. Fix it. Generally charges for this should be around $150 which is less costly than a new one.
