enter image description hereThe upper part of my Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens is separated from the lens body due to a fall.

One of its 4 lugs has broken off. Can I still attach the upper and the lower parts without disassembling the whole lens?

Thank you in advance.

    Pictures would be helpful. But most likely answer is no. Even if you could, there might be other damage that would prevent the lens from working properly. Learn from the experience, and take appropriate precautions to avoid dropping equipment in the future.

    What do you mean by "upper?" The mount end or the front of the lens? Something else?

  • This is a photography site, so.... photograph the problem if you still have any lens left. May 13 '19 at 15:46
  • Upper part of lens.

  • Looks worse than I'd imagined before you added the image. But hard to tell because DOF is too shallow.

One of the best price/performance lens and even does not need to fall off. Price of repairing it exceedes it's own price. Try to glue parts to fix together and then use it with reversal adapter for macro photography.
