What does it cost to repair a Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Lens?

What does it cost to repair a Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Lens?

Yes, you should get a new lens. The 75-300 is almost unquestionably the worst lens made by Canon, so spending any money on it is a bad investment.

Can I use Canon EF lenses on an EOS 600?

I see two questions here (if by Canon 600 you mean Canon EOS 600D): Are your lens compatible with Canon 600D? If by 100-400 you mean Canon EF 100-400mm, by 24-70 you mean Canon EF 24-70mm/f2.8 or f4 ...
