So I accidentally dropped my Nikkor AF 70-300 mm lens on the floor (yes, stupid).
Now the zoom ring does not work. When I turn it, nothing happens. However, I can slide the lens back and forth, and zoom in and out that way. The zoom ring does not move when I do that. Other than that, the lens seems fine:
- No noticeable difference on pictures taken
- Focus works, both manual and auto
It is like there is no longer a connection between the zoom ring and the actual lens. Can this be fixed ? By a professional or can I do it myself ?
